Introduction to Eastern Christian Spirituality: The Syriac Tradition
Introduction to Eastern Christian Spirituality: The Syriac Tradition introduces some of the major writers and ascetics of the Syriac world, that region of the Middle East that was the home of the Syriac language and culture. Although it is an area rich in thought and tradition, the Syriac world has not been studied extensively in English and is little known by the general public. This work is a modest introduction to a very abundant and complex heritage.
