This volume contains papers from the First International Congress on Eastern Christianity held in Córdoba, Spain, November 2005.

The encounter of medieval Christian writers with several linguistic traditions through the Middle Ages produced one of the most important branches of Middle Eastern literature. This encounter not only changed the nature of the respective writings throughout time, but also influenced considerably the development of the legacies transmitted by the writers and the scholars of various Eastern Christian churches. During the centuries of Christian presence in the Near East, Christian works flourished in different languages over an extraordinary variety of literary fields - history, science, philosophy, translations, poetry, and law. Consequently, the rich textual history developed by the churches in Middle Eastern lands and beyond is of great importance in describing the genealogy of Christian legacy.

Most of the contributions in this volume deal with subjects of several specializations: ecclesiastical history, theology, exegesis, as well as literature, secular history, cultural contacts, manuscript tradition and transmission, and linguistics. One of the most important political changes in the Middle Ages was the rise of Islam and the subsequent arrival of Islamic power, and these events are reflected ideologically in many of the contributions. Collectively, the studies gathered in the present volume constitute surveys of particular areas of Christiana and they investigate several issues in the transmission of Christian culture, mainly in Arabic, Greek and Syriac, but also in Latin. Contributors include Samir Khalil Samir, Juan Nadal Cañellas, Clare E. Wilde, Ángel Urbán Fernández, Pablo Argárate, Ignacio Carbajosa, Harald Suermann, Herman Teule, Emmanouela Grypeou, David Hernández de la Fuente, Adel Sidarus, Mark N. Swanson, Fernando González Muñoz, Sebastià Janeras, Marìa Teresa Penelas, Federico Corriente, Juan Pedro Monferrer-Sala, Massimo Pazzini, Francisco del Río Sánchez and Sofía Torallas Tovar.


Juan Pedro Monferrer-Sala is Professor in Semitic Studies in the Faculty of Arts, University of Córdoba. He has published studies of religious texts from early Islam and Christian-Arabic materials. He is currently working on the edition and study of Christian-Arabic manuscripts.

Greek Tradition and Latin Influence in the Work of George Scholarios

“Alone Against All of Europe”
ISBN: 1-59333-344-7
This title is a study of the work and career of theologian and diplomat George Scholarios who became the first Ecumenical Patriarch of the Orthodox Church during the period of Ottoman Rule. Scholarios advocated the union of the Greek and Latin Churches, but he later became the leader of the anti-Unionist faction in the final years of the Byzantine Empire. Scholarios played an important role in East-West dialogues, including the Council of Ferrara-Florence in 1438-39. This book provides a fresh look at some of the cultural misunderstandings that took place at the Council and related dialogues.

Miaphysite Christology

An Ethiopian Perspective
ISBN: 978-1-60724-528-5
As in the case of the christology of the other non-Chalcedonian Oriental Orthodox Churches, Ethiopian christology is usually nicknamed as monophysite christology - an erroneous christological position which indicates the absorption of the humanity of Christ by its divinity. Disproving such a pejorative designation, this book contends that the christological position of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church should correctly be termed as miaphysite christology, which highlights the one-united nature of the Word of God incarnate. Besides, the book proves the orthodoxy of Ethiopian christology, demonstrating how it is based on the christology of St. Cyril of Alexandria.
