The Martyred Church: A History of the Church of the East
East & West Publishing, Limited, 2011 - 522 pages
The Church of the East is arguably the most interesting of all the Syriac-speaking Churches. Few outside the Middle East are familiar with it, yet between the ninth and fourteenth centuries the Church of the East was the largest Christian Church in the world, with dioceses stretching from the Mediterranean to Asia and China. The church has been harried and persecuted throughout its history. The tragic story of this `martyred church' is brought vividly to life in this impressive book.
