Chapter Summary

This chapter concerns the printing activities of the Syrian Orthodox Christians. On this topic, information is available, but scattered in various sources, and there is no work concentrating solely on this subject. The chapter aims to make good this deficiency. There are several works on the printing activities of the non-Muslim communities in the Near East and Western Asia. For the most part, these deal with people involved in missionary activities. Concerning the rest, there exist few extensive research works, and there is little public awareness of them. The printing efforts of the Syrian Orthodox Church have failed to attract attention. Apart from a short-lived press in Istanbul in the 1840s, the printing activities of the Syrian Orthodox Church started with the Patriarch Petrus IV, who made it a priority to complete the tasks that previous patriarchs had initiated or planned.

Keywords: Istanbul; Patriarch Petrus IV; Syrian Orthodox Church; Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate Press
