Dictionary of Syriac Heritage
- Dear George,
I was recently contacted by the author of the article on Hira for the
forthcoming Dictionary of Syriac Heritage. I have looked over his article
and made my recommendations.
I understand that he was invited earlier this year to contribute this
article even though, by his own admission, he had little knowledge of Hira.
Hence he asked for my advice which, of course, I am most willing to give.
I am rather disappointed that my singular expertise on Hira (and other
topics) has been overlooked for the forthcoming Dictionary.
If there are other aspects of 'Eastern' Christianity (i.e. Christianity in
Mesopotamia, the Gulf, Central Asia, Afghanistan and China) that you may
wish to include, but which have not been allocated, you might care to
Yours, with best wishes
