Beskrivning

Christoph Baumer is one of the very few Westerners to have visited many of the most important Assyrian sites, and has written the only comprehensive history of the »Nestorian» (or Apostolic Assyrian) Church, which now fights for survival in its country of origin, Iraq.

He traces its apostolic beginnings to the present day, and discusses the Church's theology, christology and uniquely vigorous spirituality.

He analyzes the Church's turbulent relationship with other Christian chuches and its dialogue with neighboring world religions such as Zoroastrianism, Manichaeism, Islam, Buddhism and Taoism.

Richly illustrated with maps and over 150 full-color photographs, the book will be essential reading for those interested in a fascinating but neglected Christian community which has profoundly shaped the history of civilization in both East and West. [Språk: Engelska] Inbunden
