And in many cases they arc not even translations from Syriac at all. This, however, is an area where a great deal of sorting and critical analysis still remains to be done. The same also applies to the extensive translations of works attributed to Ephrem into oriental languages, above all Arabic. Poetic Form St Ephrem's poetry falls into two different categories, the m emre or verse homilies, written in couplets of 7+ 7 syllables, and the madraslze or hymns in stanza form , where all the stanzas of a particular hymn will be constructed on a single syllabic pattern chosen out of the great many syllabic patterns available.
St Ephrem's reputation as a writer was very great both in the Syriac and in the Graeco-Latin world. Anonymous and spurious works, however, have a stron g tendency to become attached to famous names, and it is now known that a large number of works attributed to St Ephrem are certainly not by him, and nowhere does this apply so much as to the body of writings in Greek and Latin which are transmitted under his name. Between the definitely genuine and the definitely spurious comes a rather large number of works, especially verse homilies (memre), whose status is at present doubtful or disputed.
Sozomen and Theodoret, faced with the undisputed prestige of Ephrem as a Syriac poet, deduced that "barbarian" Syriac could only have achieved such heights of poetic excellence under the influence and inspiration of Greek models. 5 (Bardaisan). Relics of Manidmcan hymnography survive in Coptic (edited by C. R. C. Allhcrry) and in various Iranian dialects (edited by M. Boyce) . 38 HYMNS ON PARADISE poetic output, St Ephrem employs some fifty or so different stanza patterns, ranging from the very simple (such as 5+4+5 +4 syllables) to the highly complex.
