THE SYRIAC MANUSCRIPTS…

The present collection is part of the Syriac manuscript patrimony held in that corner of land commonly referred to as Tur ‘Abdin, a slither of land in far southeastern Turkey that creeps between Syria and Iraq. A land whose wealth of ecclesiastical heritage contrasts with its remote unassuming nature, far from any easy and straightforward path. However, even what is but a drop in a sea, speaks to the importance of this ancient culture and of the exceptional and strenuous conservation work.
