Abstract

Edited by Lawrence I. Conrad, Ph.D. 1981

A reference work, in French, of saintly figures who played a role in the history and consciousness of the Syriac-speaking church in the East. Details about them are scattered in calendrical, hagiographical, martyro-logical, historical, and other works, and the author has now collected this material and organized it in a work that will long remain a classic in its field. Entries for the various saints are arranged in alphabetical order (with full cross-referencing) and offer not only such details as are known about these figures but also a scholarly assessment of their personae and references for further reading. The book is essential reading for those interested in the history of the Syriac church, Muslim-Christian relations, the rise and development of Christianity in the Middle East, comparative religion, and Syriac literature.
