Abstract

It is by now widely acknowledged that between late antiquity and the first centuries of Islam, Syriac speaking Christian communities were more than just scattered minority communities with little impact in geographical areas strongly shaped by the Iranian element. Iranianate and Syriac Christianity bridges across different specialized disciplines, first and foremost Iranian Studies and Syriac Studies and the History of Christianity, and assembles a range of authorative voices on the subject. The 14 contributions are arranged in two sections, Mission, Conversion and Power and Languages, Texts and Concepts, representing a wide range of approaches and reflecting the complexity of the religious, political and cultural history of the Christian communities in the Eurasian era up to the year 1000 and beyond.
