The Rage of Islam: An Account of the Massacres of Christians by the Turks in Persia by Yonan Shahbaz

The Rage of Islam is a chilling account of the massacres that befell the Christians of Persia in 1915. The book provides a good description of the massacres of 1915 from the point of view of a native Assyrian.


Massacres, Resistance, Protectors: Muslim-Christian Relations in Eastern Anatolia during World War I by David Gaunt
This is a pioneering historical investigation of the Assyrian, Chaldean, and Syrian Christian minorities during World War I, who suffered the same fate as the Armenians. Ethnic cleansing and large-scale massacres occurred throughout northern Mesopotamia and parts of Ottoman-occupied Iran. Based on primary sources from official archives, as well as hitherto unused manuscript sources and oral histories published here for the first time, this book attempts to give a full picture of the events of 1915. The book concentrates on the Assyrians of Urmia and Hakkari and on the Syrians of Diyarbekir province, particularly in Tur Abdin.


The Bible in the Syriac Tradition (English Version) by Sebastian Brock
This is a basic introduction to the various Syriac translations of the Bible and the ways in which they were used in the Syriac tradition. After an initial discussion of the general problems of biblical translation, the different surviving Syriac translations are outlined, as well as biblical manuscripts, lectionaires, printed editions, and translations. A reception history of the Syriac Bible covers the ways in which it has been interpreted, the commentary tradition, its use in preaching, in liturgy, and in spirituality. An appendix offers some comparative samples (in translation) to illustrate some of the differences between the different Syriac translations.


The Catholicos of the East and His People by Arthur Maclean
Describes the life and customs, both ancient and modern, of the modern Assyrians (“Nestorians”) who formed in the nineteenth century a remarkable outpost of Christianity in the Middle East. The authors rely in their descriptions on the Sunhadus, or Book of Canon Law, which governs that Church even today.


The Book of the Bee by Solomon of Akhlat

This book gives a detailed picture of the refugee camp by Brigadier General H. H. Austin, Commandant of the Refugee Camp.
