This pamphlet contains 206 Syriac inscriptions, sorted by date, attesting to the Nestorian presence in Central Asia. Included are full Syriac texts and extensive commentary covering the spread of Nestorianism among the Turks, the evolution of Syriac, the evidence of the Black Death (in 1338 and 1339 - almost the last of these inscriptions) and the dwindling of Central Asiatic Christianity. A rare work on the Syriac heritage of the Lake Balkhash and Chinese frontier regions, this work is ideal for scholars of comparative history, Central Asia, and Syriac.

The Syriac Writers of Qatar in the Seventh Century

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0355-9
The Syriac writers of Qatar themselves produced some of the best and most sophisticated writing to be found in all Syriac literature of the seventh century, but they have not received the scholarly attention that they deserve in the last half century. This volume seeks to redress this underdevelopment by setting the standard for further research in the sub-field of Beth Qatraye studies.

The Syriac Dot

A Short History
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0425-9
The dot is used for everything in Syriac from tense to gender, number, and pronunciation, and unsurprisingly represents one of the biggest obstacles to learning the language. Using inscriptions, early grammars, and experiments with modern scribes, Dr. Kiraz peels back the evolution of the dot layer by layer to explain each of its uses in detail and to show how it adopted the wide range of uses it has today.
