      Syriac Contributions to Italio-Byzantine Art
      Fr. Dale Johnson

      Often Syriac culture is undervalued for its wealth of contributions to
      the Byzantine world. The dominance of Greek culture has often swallowed
      up creative contributions of the Syriac world and claimed it for
      themselves. The Gospel of Rabbula is a primary example of primal

      Syriac iconography where cross fertilization of ideas merge, Syriac
      artists continue to make original contributions.
