Nineteenth century Syrian Orthodox history marks a period of strife as the Church struggles to survive amid oppressive regimes from the Ottoman Empire and their corrupt local magistrates. At the same time Catholic missionaries from Europe arrive on Syrian soil in hopes of converting Orthodox believers. The combination tolls devastation for the Syrian Orthodox Church as its population dwindles and begins to shift geographically. Such is the predicament of the internal and external conflicts to which the Syrian patriarchs of the time must respond. Keeping this in mind, Metropolitan Athanasius Aphram Barsoum begins his chronicling of the nineteenth century Syrian patriarchs as they persevere to keep their Christian faith intact against foreign and domestic opposition.

History of the Za’faraan Monastery

ISBN: 978-1-59333-639-4
The History of the Za’faran Monastery is for the first time offered in English translation to the readers. It was written in 1917 by Patriarch Ignatius Aphram Barsoum (d. 1957) when he was still a monk at the monastery. The book details the history of the monastery from its inception until modern times. It deals with with everything, from construction to its significance as a center of Syriac learning and learned men. Without this small book, the first of its kind, a great and significant page of the history of the Syrian Church of Antioch would have been lamentably lost.

Until now this first insider-history of Tur Abdin has been unavailable to non-Semitic readers. Written by Patriarch Ignatius Aphram Barsoum in Syriac, this history of the mountainous region in southeastern Asia Minor called Tur Abdin has not found wide readership because of language barriers. This new edition produced by Gorgias Press is a trilingual edition: the original Syriac, Arabic, and English translations.
