|Theodore Abu Qurrah (Hard Cover Book)|
|Written by: John C. Lamoreaux|
Theodore Ab Qurrah (d. ca. 820 CE) was the Chalcedonian bishop of Haran and one of the first Arab Christian theologians. In numerous Arabic and Greek works, Ab Quarrah defended his faith from the challenges of Islam and the opponents of Chalcedon, and in so doing re-articulated traditional Christian teaching using the language and concepts of Muslim theologians. His writings provide an important witness to Christian thought in the early Islamic world.
This volume offers for the first time an English translation of nearly the complete corpus of Theodore Ab Qurrah works, with extensive notes on the Arabic and Greek texts. The translations are accompanied by a comprehensive introduction to the life and work of Ab Qurrah.
Specialists and non-specialists alike will find this volume an accessible and valuable contribution to the history of Christian theology and early Islamic and Byzantine thought.
