      Role of Syriac in the Late Renaissance
      by Father Dale A. Johnson

      The language of Syriac played a curious role in the development of the
      Christian Kabbalah, the attempted conversion of Muslims and Jews, the
      Protestant Reformation and the emergence of the printing press in the
      16th century Europe.

      European Christian/Jewish relations were perhaps at their lowest point
      in 1492 when on January 1, Jews were required to either leave Spain or
      convert to Christianity. In a xenophobic wave of Inquisitions fueled by
      the victories of Christian armies in pushing out the last of the Muslim
      occupiers of Europe thousands of Jews were killed while others were
      forced to flee for their lives into the diaspora. Some found welcome
      refuge in Istanbul and the Ottoman Empire.
