The Orthodox Church in the Arab World 700–1700: An Anthology of Sources

   
Edited by Samuel Noble and Alexander Treiger
Foreword by Metropolitan Ephrem (Kyriakos)

A volume of Orthodox Christian Series

“This book offers you a testimony of the faith of the Orthodox Church in the Arab world in the historical period between 700 and 1700. It weaves together an anthology of many previously unpublished works, unknown in Arabic and even more so in English. This is a good initiative by Samuel Noble and Dr. Alexander Treiger, who strive to show the entire world how much the Lord has spoken through the mouth of authors devoted to Him, amidst major historical events from the rise of Islam, through the Umayyad, ʿAbbasid, and Fatimid periods, the Crusaders, the Mongols, and the Mamluks, down to the Ottoman era. All this bears witness to the fact that the Christian Church is nourished by the ongoing revelation of the Holy Spirit, the Divine Spirit who inspires and acts within individuals dedicating themselves to witnessing to the Truth—that Truth that became incarnate in Him who has overcome all kinds of death and corruption throughout human history: our Lord Jesus Christ. In both their life and their society, people of the Middle East can feel, in a great number of ways, the effects of this Truth, and so the Lord inspires those who love Him to find ways to express His ongoing presence and His continuous operation within human history.”
