When Imperial Russia began to discover evidence of Syriac Chrisitianity in Russian Turkestan, she shared some of the finds with her French allies. This survey of the early history of the Church of the East by a distinguished historian of Christianity was part of the volume issued to commemorate the exhibition of thirty inscriptions at the Musée Guimet. Now difficult to obtain, it describes the excavations, tells the history of the Church, its origins in Persia, its expansion under the Arab Conquest, and its travails under the Turks, the Mongols, and the Chinese. There are two appendices, one containing rubbings and transcriptions of the thirty exhibits, more detailed than Chwolsohn's publication in Saint Petersburg, (also available from Gorgias Press), the other a detailed description of the Nestorian Stele of Siganfu.

Collection of Historical Documents in Relation with the Syriac Orthodox Community in the Late Period of the Ottoman Empire

The Register of Mardin MS 1006
ISBN: 978-1-60724-994-8
In the Ottoman Empire, Syriac communities kept their own baptismal books, marriage, funeral and other records and many of these can be found in various libraries, churches, monasteries in the West and East. The Syriac Garšūnī manuscript found in the Church of the Forty Martyrs in Mardin contains several lists of different subjects that go back to the late period of the Ottoman Empire. These lists, published here for the first time with annotations, are an important historical source for the social, economic, cultural and religious history of the Near East during the 19th century.
