This pamphlet contains 206 Syriac inscriptions, sorted by date, attesting to the Nestorian presence in Central Asia. Included are full Syriac texts and extensive commentary covering the spread of Nestorianism among the Turks, the evolution of Syriac, the evidence of the Black Death (in 1338 and 1339 - almost the last of these inscriptions) and the dwindling of Central Asiatic Christianity. A rare work on the Syriac heritage of the Lake Balkhash and Chinese frontier regions, this work is ideal for scholars of comparative history, Central Asia, and Syriac.
