Christianity has been the majority religion in the West for centuries, so the vast majority of Christians in the West today do not know the experience of being the minority. However, the Christians of the Middle East and other parts of the world are quite familiar with this experience as they have been the minority for many centuries. In the modern period, the Christian minority communities in Turkey have experienced many difficulties, including the well known massacre of Armenian and Turkish Christians in the early twentieth century. In the present work, Wilhelm Baum provides an historical survey of the plight of Christians in Turkey. The work begins during the time of the late Byzantine Empire, but it focuses on the modern period and, more specifically, on the twentieth century.

The Syriac Dot

A Short History
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0425-9
The dot is used for everything in Syriac from tense to gender, number, and pronunciation, and unsurprisingly represents one of the biggest obstacles to learning the language. Using inscriptions, early grammars, and experiments with modern scribes, Dr. Kiraz peels back the evolution of the dot layer by layer to explain each of its uses in detail and to show how it adopted the wide range of uses it has today.

The New Syriac Primer, 2nd Edition

Series: Gorgias Handbooks 9
ISBN: 978-1-59333-325-6
A truly useful introduction to the Syriac language is a rare find. This practical initiation to the study of this ancient language of the Christian church speaks with clarity and authority. A fruitful integration of scholarly introduction and practical application, this primer is more than a simple grammar or syntactic introduction to the language. Writing in a style designed for beginners, Kiraz avoids technical language and strives for a reader-friendly inductive approach. Readings from actual Syriac texts allow the student to experience the language first hand and the basics of the grammar of the language are ably explained. The book comes with downloadable material so that readers may listen to all reading sentences and text passages in the book.
