The Orthodox Church in the Arab World (700-1700) PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Orthodox Church in the Arab World (700-1700) free pdf Arabic was one of the first languages in which the Gospel was preached. Yet in the West, scholars have all but forgotten about these texts. In The Orthodox Church in the Arab World (700-1700), Alexander Treiger and Samuel Noble bring these rich but overlooked works to English-language readers. The popular assumption in Christian history is that Christianity - in the wake of Islamic conquests - abandoned the Middle East in order to root elsewhere. Treiger and Noble show this not to be the case, highlighting an impressive diversity of genres by which Arabic writers engaged Christian orthodoxy, including translations of the Bible, biblical commentaries, hagiography, theological and polemical treatises, devotional poetry, philosophy, medicine, and history.
