The current publication is divided into two parts. The first part contains a description of the manuscript tradition of the Chapters on Knowledge of Rabban Aphnīmāran, an East Syriac mystical writer of the 7th c. For the first time a description of the newly identified West Syriac manuscript tradition of Rabban Aphnīmāran’s Chapters, as well as a description of the Arabic version of this text is provided (the Arabic version was identified in 2019 by the authors of the present paper). The second part contains a critical edition of the first thirteen chapters of Aphnīmāran’s work, as well as the Anonymous commentary on them, and a Russian translation of Syriac and Arabic texts. This publication will be continued with other articles that finally will cover the rest of the Chapters on Knowledge.
