In these three volumes, the French historian supplies information on the dioceses and bishops of the provinces under the patriarchates of Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, and Jerusalem. In addition, the last volume deals with the Maronites and their history. Full indices conclude each volume. This work is an essential resource for those interested in the churches of the Middle East and Africa.
