Memorial to Steven Ring

SAD NEWS: Some memories of Steven Ring, Syriacist Extraordinaire (Roger Pearse).
Yesterday I learned by accident of the death of Steven Ring, one of the first enthusiasts online to promote Syriac studies. He died on March 28th 2021 of cancer. He had been ill for the previous four years, during which time he undertook and completed a PhD at SOAS.


Dr. Ring was a longstanding and active member of the Hygoye List. I have mentioned his name a few times in connection with it.

Requiescat in Pace. And cross-file under Syriac Watch.
