An early Arabic translation of the “Sayings of the Desert Fathers” (“Apophthegmata Patrum”), a manuscript from the Monastery of St. Catherine at Sinai and dated 288 Year of the Hegira (900-901 AD), predating most of the Greek manuscripts of the “apophthegms”.

Thanks to Ramez Mikhail and Alin Suciu for drawing this to my attention.
