Previous: Progress to date
The widest possible coverage is aimed at, ranging from pre-Christian to
modern times and across all parts of the world that have been touched by
Syriac culture. The subject matter falls broadly into the following
- people - church leaders, saints, monks, authors, scholars
and artists, as well as members of foreign (e.g. Byzantine,
Persian, Arab, Mongol) ruling groups to whom Syriac-
speaking communities have been subject.
- places - past and present centres of Syriac population,
dioceses, monuments, especially monasteries and churches,
and important schools.
- works of literature - important writings both religious
- topics in ecclesiastical history - denominations,
hierarchical titles, festivals, liturgical terms,
councils and synods, etc.
