Re: Convert courtiers in Medieval Islam

Dear Uriel

You may find useful material here:

Cabrol, Cécile. Les secrétaires nestoriens à Bagdad (762-1258 AD), Corpus de recherches arabes-chrétiennes. Beirut: CERPOC-FSR-USJ, 2012.

There is an article by the same author, more specifically on the caliphate of al-Muqtadir, in Abbasid Studies II, ed. John Nawas, Peeters, 2010.

I hope this helps

Call for Media Coverage--Inaugural Summit for Middle East Christians September 9 – 11, 2014 Washington, D.C.


We notified "In Defense of Christians" that their Summit information had been posted to H-Catholic. Joseph Cella, their Media Director, responded by asking if someone from H-Catholic would be in the area and would be interested in attending and covering the event.

This is therefore an invitation to anyone on H-Catholic who would like to attend and to write a report for our list. This is an extraordinary and important event, and attending would be a great opportunity to meet leaders and others who care about this issue.
