Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of modern author names that occur in this book titled Jacob of Edessa and the Syriac Culture of His Day. Jacob, Bishop of Edessa (c.633?708 ce), is one of the most significant figures of Syriac Christianity, especially in the Syrian Orthodox Church of which he was an adherent. The brief biography of Jacob given by Michael the Syrian and Barhebraeus tells us that he resigned after only a few years as bishop of Edessa out of frustration with the clergy?s lack of respect for ecclesiastical canons. So it is hardly surprising that Jacob was famed in the Syrian Orthodox Church for his contribution to canon law.

Keywords: canon law; Jacob of Edessa; Syriac Christianity
