Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a short description of the work Bartholomaiou tou Edesenou (sic) elenchos Agarenou, 'Bartholomew of Edessa's refutation of an Agarene'on Christian-Muslim relations. The main feature of the work is its unsystematic character: it lacks a logical structure and is full of repetitions and inconsistencies, which is partly due to Bartholomew's outbursts. Bartholomew's 'argumentation' characteristically consists of picking out details from his Muslim sources, sometimes rendering them very exactly, and sometimes giving them the exact opposite of their original sense.

Keywords: Bartholomew of Edessa; Christian-Muslim relations
