The Didascalia Apostolorum—literally “the teaching of the apostles”—is a third-century document expanded from the Didache of the first century AD. Considered by most Church Fathers to be of actual apostolic origin, scholars now believe it is likely of Syrian or Antiochene provenance, compiled by a prominent Syrian bishop. Originally written in Greek, this English version of the Didascalia is translated by Margaret Dunlop Gibson from the early-nineteenth century Syriac edition. It contains Church Orders and instructions for Christian clergy.

Margaret Dunlop Gibson (1843–1920) and her twin sister, Agnes Smith Lewis, were born in Scotland, educated in England, and traveled widely in the Middle East. Both sisters became experts in a number of ancient languages, and throughout their lives conducted much important research and translation work. The sisters’ pioneering research and publications earned them an important place in Semitic scholarship.
