Christianity in the Islamic world is a series that highlights the historic and continuing relationship between Christianity and Islam. By examining the development of Christianity in Islamic contexts and relationship between the religions, it is hoped that a new level of understanding may be reached.
The relationship between early Christianity in Arabia and the development of Islam was a question that absorbed Louis Cheikho’s attention. In this Arabic volume he directly addresses Christianity and Christian literature in Arabia before the rise of Islam.
In this edition of Cheikho’s literary survey of Arabic literature of the nineteenth century, the reader will find the Arabic original of Cheikho’s fine text. Difficult to locate outside the Middle East, Gorgias Press is now bringing this uncommon find to Arabists in the western world.
Consistently referenced as a reliable source on the "Nestorian" missionary movement, this historical account of that movement is a necessary volume for anyone interested in the missionary work of the Eastern Church. Stewart’s engaging account has remained fresh through the years and remains a standard reference on the topic.
