When Imperial Russia began to discover evidence of Syriac Chrisitianity in Russian Turkestan, she shared some of the finds with her French allies. This survey of the early history of the Church of the East by a distinguished historian of Christianity was part of the volume issued to commemorate the exhibition of thirty inscriptions at the Musée Guimet. Now difficult to obtain, it describes the excavations, tells the history of the Church, its origins in Persia, its expansion under the Arab Conquest, and its travails under the Turks, the Mongols, and the Chinese. There are two appendices, one containing rubbings and transcriptions of the thirty exhibits, more detailed than Chwolsohn's publication in Saint Petersburg, (also available from Gorgias Press), the other a detailed description of the Nestorian Stele of Siganfu.

Leshono Suryoyo: First Studies in Syriac

Series: Gorgias Handbooks 2
ISBN: 1-59333-190-8
John Healey’s, Leshono Suryoyo, is an introductory grammar for those wishing to learn to read Classical Syriac, one of the major literary dialects of Aramaic and the language of one of the main groups of Middle Eastern churches, including the Syrian Orthodox Church, the Church of the East, and the Chaldaean Church. From the first centuries of the Christian era, Syriac was used by the main theological and historical writers of this tradition (Ephrem the Syrian, Philoxenus of Mabbogh, Thomas of Marga, and Barhebraeus). It also continues to be used in worship.

Kassia the Nun in Context

The Religious Thought of a Ninth-Century Byzantine Monastic
ISBN: 978-1-61143-969-4
Kassia the Nun offers a unique glimpse into ninth-century Byzantium in the only woman whose works were included in the corpus of liturgical hymns. This volume explores Kassia’s thought on Christology, on gender, and on monasticism itself. It provides readers with an opportunity to know this woman of remarkable intellect, wit, and piety by drawing primarily on her own words. Kassia’s is one of the only female voices from ninth-century Byzantium and this volume accordingly examines her reflections on gender in the context of her society and concludes that she represents a perspective that might be described as feminist.
