Eastern Christian studies have traditionally been oriented towards text collection and edition, with a heavily theological approach. Scholarly production on the subject, though abundant, suffers from fragmentation and compartmentalization across disciplines, with a lamentable lack of integrated and comparative studies.

This series aims to promote a more holistic and inter-disciplinary approach towards the history of the East Christian communities of the Byzantine, Iranian and Islamic worlds during the period 300-1500.

It has two parts: the first presenting each of the East Christian cultural and linguistic communities in turn; the second focusing on a number of themes that cut across usual cultural, confessional and linguistic divides.

Each volume brings together the most influential articles on the given topic and opens with an introduction by a leading expert in the field discussing the key aspects and debates frameing new questions and directions for future research. The aim is that these volumes can act as a stimulus for new research into Eastern Christianity and as such they will be essential reading for all students and academics of Late Antiquity, Byzantium, Islam and Western Christendom.
