    Christianity was born in the Middle East. Its Christian Churches are representative of the great diversity of rites and cultures within Christianity. Middle Eastern Christianity serves to point to the ongoing re-sourcing and renewing of global Christian identity. This wide-ranging collection of papers describes aspects of the modern history and theology of Christianity in the Middle East. The papers cover the history of the Syrian Orthodox and Catholic Churches, the renewal and revival of the Coptic Orthodox Church, the modern history of the Patriarchs of the Maronite and Chaldean Churches, the Maronite revival of its hermetical tradition, the modern history of the Armenian Catholic Church, ecumenical relations between the Western and Eastern Churches, the emergence of Hebrew Christianity in the modern State of Israel, Palestinian Christianity and the Greek Orthodox Church in Jerusalem and the Holy Land, and the presence of two great Western religious orders- the Benedictines and the Franciscans in the Middle East.
