Useful Links

Antioch Centre

According to the website: "'Antioch: A Centre for Antiochian Orthodox Christian Studies and Research' has been established to facilitate the rediscovery of this heritage through: Translating manuscripts written in the three main languages of the Antiochian Orthodox tradition, i.e. Aramaic (Syriac), Greek and Arabic; Cataloguing these manuscripts in a fully searchable database open to all; Publishing its findings both in print and online; Supporting scholars in the field; Organising conferences."

Centre de Documentation et de Recherches Arabes Chrétiennes

CEDRAC brings together researchers from around the world and organizes seminars, conferences, and congresses in Lebanon and abroad.  CEDRAC covers the Christian Arab heritage from its origins to today, including both original works and translations of religious works (theology, liturgy, apologetics, and polemics) and secular works (medicine, philosophy, and science).  Particular emphasis is given to history and literature from the medieval period.

Centre de Recherche et de Publications de l’Orient Chrétien

CERPOC is a center of study (seminars, conferences, and colloquia), research (manuals, dossiers, manuscripts, bibliographies, and research projects), and publications of texts and documents on eastern Christianity.  CERPOC is part of the Faculty of Religious Studies at the Université Saint-Joseph in Lebanon.

Christians in the Middle East

From the website: "Christians in the Middle East is an international network of scholars working on issues related to Christians in the Middle East from the late 18th century to the contemporary era. The understanding of the term ‘Middle East’ is broad, but as a general guide, includes the Arab League countries and Iran, Turkey and Israel. We are interested in both local and other Christians (including western or other missionaries, for example)."  Christians in the Middle East operates an email network for the exchange of scholarly information, shares information about events, and maintains a directory of monographs and edited collections that have been published on the theme of Christians in the Middle East.

Gruppo di Ricerca Arabo-Cristiana

GRAC is an association formed by Arabists who since 1993 have been working together for the study and dissemination of the cultural heritage of Arab Christians in Italy and Europe. Formed in 1991-1992 by a group of scholars interested in the Arab world and the Christian East, it was formed as an association in 1999.


From the website:  "Hugoye-list is an e-mail discussion group devoted to the academic field of Syriac studies.  The list is associated with the electronic journal Hugoye: Journal of Syriac Studies and is sponsored by the Beth Mardutho: The Syriac Institute.  It is intended for the use of academic scholars."
