This volume comes from the pen of an eyewitness to the events described in it. Rev. Father Joseph Naayem, based on his experiences and conversations with others, narrates the horrors experienced by the Chaldean Christians prior to World War I at the hands of the Turks. His language is that of one who personally suffered at their hands, and his aim in having the work published was to inform readers in England and the United States of these events that were otherwise not well known specifically with respect to the Chaldeans. He begins with a massacre in Urfa (ancient Edessa), and then moves to other regions. Throughout the narrative, his account is close and personal. The volume will make an important contribution for readers interested in Middle Eastern history and Christianity there.

History of the Za’faraan Monastery

ISBN: 978-1-59333-639-4
The History of the Za’faran Monastery is for the first time offered in English translation to the readers. It was written in 1917 by Patriarch Ignatius Aphram Barsoum (d. 1957) when he was still a monk at the monastery. The book details the history of the monastery from its inception until modern times. It deals with with everything, from construction to its significance as a center of Syriac learning and learned men. Without this small book, the first of its kind, a great and significant page of the history of the Syrian Church of Antioch would have been lamentably lost.
