Missionary Narratives in the Syriac Tradition
In chapter 1, I lay out a methodology for studying the missionary stories of the Syriac churches. I discuss the image of the hagiographer, the missionary, and the monarch. I examine the theological disputes from the fourth through the sixth centuries that played a role in the separation of the Church of the East and the Syrian Orthodox Church from the Byzantine Chalcedonian Church. I show how I will use the missionary stories of the Syriac tradition to discuss the gradual process by which the Church of the East and the Syrian Orthodox Church became separate ecclesial bodies.
