Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a short description of the book Synaxarion periechon holou tou eniautou ton hagion kai ton hosion en syntomo ta hypomnemata, Synaxarium Ecclesiae Constantinopolitanae, 'Synaxarion containing abstracts of deeds of the blessed saints and martyrs for the whole year', 'Synaxarion of the Great Church'. The Synaxarion of Constantinople is the liturgical book - though Synaxaries, together with other liturgical texts, are frequently part of larger collections - in which are recorded the commemorations for which offices (synaxeis) are celebrated according to the liturgical calendar of the Great Church, which was followed throughout the Byzantine world. The Synaxarion is important because of its wide circulation as a liturgical book. Relations between Christians and Muslims do not occupy an important place in it, and it presents a negative image of Muslims. Notices on neo-martyrs under Islam are rare.

Keywords: Christians; Muslim Arabs; Synaxarion of Constantinople; Synaxarion of the Great Church
