This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ... XVI OTHER MEANS OF SPREADING CHRISTIANITY The three important factors in the spreading of Christianity in these distant lands of the East were captives, commerce, and monasticism.1 Slaves were not infrequently Christian captives. When they were carried off en masse from the Christian empire, as sometimes happened under Sassanian kings, their ecclesiastical leaders were taken with them. The captivity of the Jews in Babylon is an illustration of this. Commerce was then more than even now the handmaid of the Gospel. The clergy would follow the merchants in order to supply them with the ordinances of the church. And so episcopal dioceses would be established. "Whence has Al-Asha his Christian ideas?" says an Arab poet. "From wine-dealers of Hira of whom he bought his wine; they 1 Thomas of Marga, ii., p. 506. Barhebraeus, Ecc. Chron., p. 125. brought them to him."1 Commercial and colonizing enterprises were made to minister to the cause of missions. The chief aim of the monks was a life of solitude and tranquility, fasting, prayer, and study, but the ascetics of both sexes were moved with the true missionary spirit and lived in communities. The nuns were very often women self-dedicated to a life of good deeds, but wearing plain garments and working in their own homes. The monks who during the reign of the Arab Caliphs did not enjoy full freedom to work among the Muhammadans, did a great work among the pagans in the most uncultivated regions of the East. In many instances the patriarchs, bishops, and priests were dragged out of their cells and ordained, almost by force. In some cases they gave up their offices and went back into their cloisters. Isaac of Nineveh was much against his will consecrated Bishop of that city (660). 1 Wellhausen, ...

Book Description
It is widely believed that the Emperor Constantine’s conversion to Christianity politicized religious allegiances, dividing the Christian Roman Empire from the Zoroastrian Sasanian Empire and leading to the persecution of Christians in Persia. This account, however, is based on Greek ecclesiastical histories and Syriac martyrdom narratives that date to centuries after the fact. In this groundbreaking study, Kyle Smith analyzes diverse Greek, Latin, and Syriac sources to show that there was not a single history of fourth-century Mesopotamia. By examining the conflicting hagiographical and historical evidence, Constantine and the Captive Christians of Persia presents an evocative and evolving portrait of the first Christian emperor, uncovering how Syriac Christians manipulated the image of their western Christian counterparts to fashion their own political and religious identities during this century of radical change.

Book Description
Who are the Assyrians and what role did they play in shaping modern Iraq? Were they simply bystanders, victims of collateral damage who played a passive role in the history of Iraq? And how have they negotiated their position throughout various periods of Iraq's state-building processes? This book details the narrative and history of Iraq in the 20th century and reinserts the Assyrian experience as an integral part of Iraq's broader contemporary historiography. It is the first comprehensive account to contextualize this native people's experience alongside the developmental processes of the modern Iraqi state. Using primary and secondary data, this book offers a nuanced exploration of the dynamics that have affected and determined the trajectory of the Assyrians' experience in 20th century Iraq.

Book Description
Many scholars, in the U.S. and elsewhere, have decried the racism and "Orientalism" that characterizes much Western writing on the Middle East. Such writings conflate different peoples and nations, and movements within such peoples and nations, into unitary and malevolent hordes, uncivilized reservoirs of danger, while ignoring or downplaying analogous tendencies towards conformity or barbarism in other regions, including the West. Assyrians in particular suffer from Old Testament and pop culture references to their barbarity and cruelty, which ignore or downplay massacres or torture by the Judeans, Greeks, and Romans who are celebrated by history as ancestors of the West. This work, through its rich depictions of tribal and religious diversity within Mesopotamia, may help serve as a corrective to this tendency of contemporary writing on the Middle East and the Assyrians in particular. Furthermore, Aboona's work also steps away from the age-old oversimplified rubric of an "Arab Muslim" Middle East, and into the cultural mosaic that is more representative of the region. In this book, author Hirmis Aboona presents compelling research from numerous primary sources in English, Arabic, and Syriac on the ancient origins, modern struggles, and distinctive culture of the Assyrian tribes living in northern Mesopotamia, from the plains of Nineveh north and east to southeastern Anatolia and the Lake Urmia region. Among other findings, this book debunks the tendency of modern scholars to question the continuity of the Assyrian identity to the modern day by confirming that the Assyrians of northern Mesopotamia told some of the earliest English and American visitors to the region that they descended from the ancient Assyrians and that their churches and identity predated the Arab conquest. It details how the Assyrian tribes of the mountain dioceses of the "Nestorian" Church of the East maintained a surprising degree of independence until the Ottoman governor of Mosul authorized Kurdish militia to attack and subjugate or evict them. Assyrians, Kurds, and Ottomans is a work that will be of great interest and use to scholars of history, Middle Eastern studies, international relations, and anthropology.
