This study asembes and discusses the evidence for the Nestorian Church in the Middle East. Builds on the work of the late J M Fiey, covering a wider geographical area and a much wider range of sources including memoirs of European and American missionaries and other literary sources, and a large number of manuscript catalogues, many only available in Arabic; analyses evidence from more than 2500 East Syrian manuscript colophons to establish the dioceses of the Church and to identify its ecclesiastical elites, and the rivalry between the Church's traditionalist and Catholic wings afetr the schism of 1552. Contains detailed maps localising hundreds of East Syrian villages in Kurdistan.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Ecclesiastical Organisation of the Church of the East 1318-1913 (Corpus Scriptorum Christianorum Orientalium)?

Seeing less darkly  Mar 27, 2004
This book is an exemplary piece of careful scholarship. It collects and judiciously assesses a vast and hitherto widely dispersed array of material. From it, a much clearer picture of the extent and history of the Church of the East can be established. A valuable contribution to understanding of the history and culture of places and people little remarked on before in the West and now seen chiefly through the distorting lens of the 'war on terror'.
