Thomson surveyed Syriac literary influence on Armenian Christianity from the time of early missionary activity to the middle ages. Evidence suggests that Armenian Christians are greatly indebted to Syriac contributions on sainthood and theology, but 12th century Syrian Patriarch Michael’s Chronicle is the only significant historical writing in the cultural exchange. Political contexts affected translation activity, especially those tied to theological differences.

The Crusades: Conflict Between Christendom and Islam

ISBN: 978-1-59333-366-9
This book sheds light on the first three Crusades (1097-1191) by introducing material from several medieval Syriac and Arabic sources and reconciling their accounts with those provided by Western sources. It presents the Crusades as an extension of the conflict between Christianity and Islam, which began with the Arabs’ first incursions into Christian territory in the seventh century and continued with their conquest of the Iberian peninsula.
