An Introduction to Syriac Christianity
Sat, 15 December 2018
We are increasingly aware of the plight of Christians in the Middle East, but we know little about the histories and traditions of these churches. This study day will introduce the history, literature, theology, and language of the Syriacspeaking churches. Syriac is a dialect of the Aramaic spoken by Jesus, and these churches trace their origins to the very beginnings of Christianity in the region. Often seen as an obscure subject, this day will show the richness of the Syriac tradition and the importance of its survival for the church today.
