The history of Byzantine-Turkish relations is often told as a chain of war and conflict. This book written by specialist on Byzantine and Turkish history Michel Balivet demonstrates the limitations of military history. Rather than solely dwelling on the conflictual aspects of the relationship between the two cultures, Balivet studies the cultural exchange, flow of ideas and processes of reconciliation. These currents might have been more subtle and silent, but are no less fundamental for our historical understanding. Through four large chapters Balivet studies the relations between Byzantine Rhômania and Diyâr-i Rûm from the 11th to the 15th century and then analyzes the Ottoman state of the 15th to the 19th century as a space of Christian and Islamic osmosis. This book tells the history of an exchange and contact without which, says Balivet, it is difficult to understand the decline and downfall of the Byzantine Empire as well as the birth of the Ottoman Empire. As such, it shows the importance of not treating Byantine and Turkish cultures as impermeable entities.

Accepting the Other

ISBN: 978-1-60724-263-5
Written by the eminent Syrian Orthodox Metropolitan of Aleppo, Accepting the Other, offers an eloquent and alternative perspective to the question of religious co-existence and the so-called ‘Clash of Civilizations.’ Bishop Gregorios’ book begins with an historical overview of the presence of Christians in the Middle East and their rich cultural contributions to the region, stretching back to the days of the Roman Empire and discusses the Islamic conquests and the Crusades from the little-heard yet extremely important Middle Eastern Christian perspective; he also offers examples of Christian-Muslim co-existence and discusses the question of citizenship.

Moslem Women

ISBN: 978-1-60724-409-7
Moslem Women is built around six main chapters; half are devoted to the place and experiences of Moslem women, and half consider the Christian mission to these women. The Zwemers acknowledge some of the great women of Islamic history, such as Rabia, the famous early mystic, and Nurah Mahal, wife of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. They speak in glowing terms about advances in the women’s situation in post-Ottoman Turkey. Their work is dedicated to serving Muslims and to seeing them as people rather than as faceless numbers; it is an excellent model for today’s Christians who feel called to engagement with Islam.
