Justinian and the Making of the Syrian Orthodox Church

Volker L. Menze

Oxford Early Christian Studies

  • Uses Latin, Greek and Syriac sources to give balanced picture of different groups involved (papacy, emperors, Syrian Orthodox)
  • Identifies the protagonists of the controversy using an extensive prosopography
  • Clearly addresses disputed matters of chronology to embed the seperation of the Syrian Orthodox church in a historical context
  • Reassesses the reign of Justinian and Theodora
