Two Short Unpublished Texts from the Arab Orthodox Tradition

Alexander Treiger, a professor of Religous Studies at Dalhousie University and co-editor of The Orthodox Church in the Arab World, has started what will hopefully be a series of articles in Balamand University's journal Chronos, publishing short, previously-unedited Arab Orthodox texts along with English translations.

In the first of these articles, he presents a text on the origin of the name "Melkite" and an account of one of the several destructions of the Maryamiyya Cathedral in Damascus. Read them here.
