Coptic Christianity in Ottoman Egypt
Egypt's Coptic Christians are the largest non-Muslim minority in the Middle East. Yet Copts, one of the world's oldest Christian communities, remain understudied relative to other ethnic and religious minorities in the region. They have been marginalized in existing scholarship, their experience subsumed by that of the majority Muslim population within Egypt. This is particularly true in studies of the Ottoman era (1517-1798), a pivotal period in the shaping of modern Egypt. This book is the first monograph to examine the religious beliefs and traditions of Christians in Ottoman Egypt and to understand Coptic religious expression in the context of its surrounding culture. More broadly, this study reveals Ottoman society's diversity by examining the intimate interaction between Muslim and Christian practice, and between the Muslim majority and ethno-religious minorities generally. This book will not only enrich our understanding of the Ottoman period but also elucidate the complex relations between majority and minority populations in the Middle East today.

Coptic Culture. Past, Present and Future
In May 2008, the Coptic Orthodox Centre in Stevenage, UK organised a conference on Coptic Culture: Past, Present, and Future. The conference aimed to highlight the contributions and achievements of one of the most obscure periods of Egyptian history: the Coptic Period. The importance of this period lies in its valuable contributions to some of the most formative theological debates of Christianity. Strictly defined as a Late Antique culture, spanning only the third to the seventh centuries AD, the heritage of the Coptic Period still survives today in the artistic expression, liturgical services, and heritage of millions of Egyptian Christians who live in Egypt and abroad.

This period's lasting contributions, however, remain underappreciated and many of its aspects remain unclear or unknown to the general public. For the first time, the conference at the Coptic Centre brought together specialists working on all aspects of Coptic culture, from its earliest phases to the present day. One of the aims of the conference was to highlight new research on Coptic art, writings, and archaeology. By bringing together specialists, academics and Coptic clergy, the conference fostered an active discussion of what defined Coptic identity in centuries past and what it means to be Coptic in contemporary culture, both in Egypt and abroad. This book presents the conference's themes and results.

An Introduction to the Christian Orthodox Churches
This clear and accessible introduction describes the life of the Orthodox Churches of the Christian East from the accession of the Emperor Constantine in 312 up to the year 2000. It explores the nature of the various churches of the Christian East, both Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian Orthodox, the Church of the East, and Greek Catholic Churches. It explains both the common traditions and the different and sometimes divisive local characteristics. The distinctive Orthodox approaches to the themes of liturgy, theology, monastic life and spirituality, iconography, popular religion, mission, politics and the schism between East and West are discussed in turn. A final chapter examines the response of the Churches to their new freedom following the collapse of communism and the prospects for the future. For Christians of the West, a knowledge of Orthodoxy can open up fresh ways of looking at the Christian faith.

Icons and the Name of God
In Orthodox theology both the icon and the name of God transmit divine energies, theophanies, or revelations that imprint God's image within us. In Icons and the Name of God renowned Orthodox theologian Sergius Bulgakov explains the theology behind the Orthodox veneration of icons and the glorification of the name of God. In the process Bulgakov covers two major controversies -- the iconoclastic controversy (sixth to eighth centuries) and the "Name of God" controversy (early twentieth century) -- and explains his belief that an icon stops being merely a religious painting and becomes sacred when it is named.

This translation of two essays The Icon and Its Veneration and The Name of God -- available in English for the first time -- makes Bulgakov's rich thinking on these key theological concepts available to a wider audience than ever before.

Relics and Miracles. Two Theological Essays
Boris Jakim here presents two major theological essays by Russian Orthodox theologian Sergius Bulgakov in English translation for the first time.
"On Holy Relics," a 1918 response to Bolshevik desecration of the relics of Russian saints, develops a comprehensive theology of holy relics, connecting them with the Incarnation and showing their place in sacramental theology. The second essay, "On the Gospel Miracles," written in 1932, presents a Christological doctrine of miracles, focusing on how human activity relates to the works of Christ.
Both essays are suffused with Bulgakov's faith in Christian resurrection and with his signature "religious materialism," in which the corporeal is illuminated by the spiritual and the earthly is transfigured into the heavenly.

De Tichelkerk in de Jordaan, 100 jaar
Dit boekje beschrijft de eeuw dat de Tichelkerk in de Jordaan staat en schildert tevens de sociale en religieuze achtergronden van deze geschiedenis, met name waar het de Jordaan als armoedebuurt van Amsterdam betreft. Men vraagt zich af: waarom is de orde van de Minderbroeders Paters Capucijnen uitgerekend in deze onherbergzame stedelijke omgeving neergestreken? Ze hadden de opdracht de Posthoornkerk aan de Haarlemmerstraat missionair en herderlijk te ondersteunen in een gedeelte van de Jordaan waar de armoede het grootst was en de afstand tot de kerk navenant. Hoe slaagden ze daar in, en hoe kwam het dat de Tichelkerk in de jaren zestig zelfstandige parochiekerk werd en de Posthoorn juist gesloten werd? De paters bleken te passen in deze buurt, meer dan dat, de Jordaners spraken op het laatst van 'hun paters', zelfs als men niet gelovig was.

In 2004 gingen in de Tichelkerk de lichten definitief uit, de laatste paters vertrokken. Twee jaar later gingen de lichten weer aan: de Russisch-orthodoxen worden de nieuwe eigenaren en de Tichel blijft als kerk behouden. Het is de epiloog van een eeuwlang Tichelkerk en Paters capucijnen aan de Lijnbaansgracht. De historie is indrukwekkend, zij is interessant en zij heeft een happy ending - de Tichel herleeft in nieuwe gedaante...

Imagining Mount Athos. Visions of a Holy Place from Homer to World War II
For more than one thousand years the monastic republic of Mount Athos has been one of the most chronicled and yet least accessible places in the Mediterranean. Difficult to reach until the last century and strictly restricted to male visitors only, the Holy Mountain of Orthodoxy has been known in the Eastern Christian world and in western Europe more through representation than through direct experience.

Most writing on Athos has focused on its Byzantine history and sacred heritage. Imagining Mount Athos uncovers a set of alternative and largely unexplored perspectives, equally important in the mapping and dissemination of Athos in popular imagination. The author considers Mount Athos as the site of pre-Christian myths of Renaissance and Enlightenment scholarship, of shelter for Allied refugees during the Second World War, and of a botanical and sociological laboratory for early-twentieth-century scientists. Each chapter considers a different narrative channel through which Athos has entered Orthodox and western European imagination: the mythical, the utopian, the sacred, the scholarly, the geopolitical, and the scientific.

Jenkins, Philip
Het vergeten christendom. De duizendjarige bloeitijd van de kerk in het Midden-Oosten, Afrika en Azie
In Het vergeten christendom maakt Jenkins op even verrassende als fascinerende wijze duidelijk dat het epicentrum van de christelijke macht aanvankelijk niet in West-Europa lag, zoals meestal wordt gedacht, maar ten oosten van Rome, in een wereld die zich uitstrekte van China tot Noord-Afrika. Jenkins verhaalt van de opkomst, bloei en ondergang van een christelijk rijk met diepe Afrikaanse en Aziatische wortels, die in sommige gevallen teruggaan tot de tijd van Jezus eerste volgelingen.

Dat dit christelijke rijk na Constantijn nog meer dan duizend jaar heeft voortbestaan, is een hoofdstuk uit de wereldgeschiedenis dat Jenkins in ditboek aan de vergetelheid ontrukt. Eeuwenlang zwaaiden de christelijke kerken de scepter over het Midden-Oosten, en in het nieuwe islamitische rijk fungeerden ze als bestuurlijke en academische machtscentra. Het vergeten christendom werpt een verhelderend licht op de verhouding tussen de christenen en hun islamitische overheersers en maakt duidelijk dat veel islamitische gebruiken en ideeen schatplichtig zijn aan deze verdwenen christelijke gemeenschappen.

The Orthodox Church in the Arab World 700-1700. An Anthology of Sources
Arabic was among the first languages in which the Gospel was preached. The Book of Acts mentions Arabs as being present at the first Pentecost in Jerusalem, where they heard the Christian message in their native tongue. Christian literature in Arabic is at least 1,300 years old, the oldest surviving texts dating from the 8th century. Pre-modern Arab Christian literature embraces such diverse genres as Arabic translations of the Bible and the Church Fathers, biblical commentaries, lives of the saints, theological and polemical treatises, devotional poetry, philosophy, medicine, and history. Yet in the Western historiography of Christianity, the Arab Christian Middle East is treated only peripherally, if at all.

The first of its kind, this anthology makes accessible in English representative selections from major Arab Christian works written between the 8th and 18th centuries. The translations are idiomatic while preserving the character of the original. The popular assumption is that in the wake of the Islamic conquests, Christianity abandoned the Middle East to flourish elsewhere, leaving its original heartland devoid of an indigenous Christian presence. Until now, several of these important texts have remained unpublished or unavailable in English. Translated by leading scholars, these texts represent the major genres of Orthodox literature in Arabic. Noble and Treiger provide an introduction that helps form a comprehensive history of Christians within the Muslim world. The collection marks an important contribution to the history of medieval Christianity and the history of the medieval Near East.

The Inner Cohesion between the Bible and the Fathers in Byzantine Tradition. Towards a codico liturgical approach to the Byzantine biblical and patristic manuscripts
Throughout the rich history of Bible research and patrology, a palet of different traditions has always existed. One of these, which is based on an abundant manuscript tradition of biblical and patristic interpretation, is the tradition of the Eastern Orthodox Church. In this book a liturgico codicological approach to the Byzantine biblical and patristic manuscripts is set out. This approach offers a key to understanding the position of the biblical and patristic writings in the Eastern Orthodox Churches. It stems from what is termed a ‘liturgical hypothesis’ and implies the necessity of a thorough reclassification of the extant manuscripts.

Characteristic of the Orthodox approach are the anchoring of the biblical writings in the liturgy of the Church, and the close connection between the Scriptures and the interpretative framework of the fathers. Special attention is paid to setting out a path of codicological research that could redirect study of the Byzantine codices to a system that allows for a more inclusive picture of the original biotope in which the manuscripts were created and evolved. Once inside this biotope, the reasons for and choices behind the content and codex formation of the biblical and patristic manuscripts become apparent.

De Thomaschristenen van India
De levendige gemeenschap van thomaschristenen in Zuid-India (Kerala) dateert van het begin van de christelijke jaartelling. Haar oorsprong ligt bij de apostel Thomas, die in het jaar 52 dat gebied bezocht. Jaap van Slageren beschrijft haar geschiedenis en gebruiken, waarin hindoeistische, joodse en vroegchristelijke elementen te herkennen zijn en toont uitgebreid haar rijke liturgische traditie.

De thomaschristenen zijn beinvloed door de Syrische en Assyrische kerken en door achtereenvolgens de Portugese, de Nederlandse (VOC) en de Engelse overheersing. De thomaschristenen hebben een authentiek karakter behouden, terwijl de grote rooms-katholieke en protestantse kerken in Zuid-India een meer westers kerkpatroon zijn gaan volgen.

Met een nawoord van oudkatholiek aartsbisschop Joris Vercammen.

Dr. Jaap van Slageren werkte van 1963-1974 als missionaire predikant, docent en historicus in Kameroen. In 1972 promoveerde hij op de ontstaansgeschiedenis van de Evangelische Kerk van Kameroen. In Nederland was hij hervormd predikant (in de Bijlmermeer, Amsterdam, Slochteren en Kolham) en secretaris van de Nederlandse Zendingsraad. Daarnaast was hij docent Missiologie en Godsdienstwetenschap aan de Protestantse Theologische Faculteit van Brussel. Van zijn hand verscheen eerder bij Skandalon Joodse invloed in Afrika (2010).
