This volume contains papers from the First International Congress on Eastern Christianity held in Córdoba, Spain, November 2005.

The encounter of medieval Christian writers with several linguistic traditions through the Middle Ages produced one of the most important branches of Middle Eastern literature. This encounter not only changed the nature of the respective writings throughout time, but also influenced considerably the development of the legacies transmitted by the writers and the scholars of various Eastern Christian churches. During the centuries of Christian presence in the Near East, Christian works flourished in different languages over an extraordinary variety of literary fields - history, science, philosophy, translations, poetry, and law. Consequently, the rich textual history developed by the churches in Middle Eastern lands and beyond is of great importance in describing the genealogy of Christian legacy.

Most of the contributions in this volume deal with subjects of several specializations: ecclesiastical history, theology, exegesis, as well as literature, secular history, cultural contacts, manuscript tradition and transmission, and linguistics. One of the most important political changes in the Middle Ages was the rise of Islam and the subsequent arrival of Islamic power, and these events are reflected ideologically in many of the contributions. Collectively, the studies gathered in the present volume constitute surveys of particular areas of Christiana and they investigate several issues in the transmission of Christian culture, mainly in Arabic, Greek and Syriac, but also in Latin. Contributors include Samir Khalil Samir, Juan Nadal Cañellas, Clare E. Wilde, Ángel Urbán Fernández, Pablo Argárate, Ignacio Carbajosa, Harald Suermann, Herman Teule, Emmanouela Grypeou, David Hernández de la Fuente, Adel Sidarus, Mark N. Swanson, Fernando González Muñoz, Sebastià Janeras, Marìa Teresa Penelas, Federico Corriente, Juan Pedro Monferrer-Sala, Massimo Pazzini, Francisco del Río Sánchez and Sofía Torallas Tovar.

Fâṭima, Daughter of Muhammad (second edition - paperback)

Second Edition
ISBN: 978-1-4632-3939-8
The only child of Muhammad to survive him, Fâṭima was from early times taken up by Shî’a Islam, for whose adherents she is the virgin mother, the heavenly intercessor with untold power before God’s throne, and the grieving mother of al-Husayn, the Shi’a's most important martyr. During her life she was impoverished and weak, neglected, marginalized, and divested of justice: but her reward in heaven comprises incalculable riches, all those in heaven will bow their heads to her, and her company will be the angels and the friends of God. Here, for the first time, her story is told.

Iran as Imagined Nation

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0227-9
A critical study of how Iranian nationalism, itself largely influenced by Orientalist scholarship first undertaken by the European Orientalists of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, has shaped modern conceptions of Iran and Iranian identity, as well as narratives of Iranian history, leading to the adoption of a broad nationalist construction of identity to suit Iranian political and ideological circumstances. This book argues that such a broad-brushed approach and the term “Iranian” could not have applied to the large multiethnic, multilingual, and multicultural populations in the vast territory of Iran over so many distinct historical periods.
