The Syriac Acts of Mar Mar? the Apostle discusses the introduction of Christianity into Upper Syria, Mesopotamia, and Persia at the end of or slightly after the apostolic age by Mar Mar?. The Acts continues the Teaching of Addai (Thaddaeus in Eusebius of Caesarea), one of the seventy disciples of Jesus, who dispatched Mar? from Edessa to the east. The Acts traces Mar?'s itinerary and preaching in Mesopotamia until his reaching Babylonia, where he founded the first church near the Hellenistic city of Seleucia on the Tigris. By the early fifth century, the birthplace of Christianity in Babylonia became the patriarchal seat of the Church of the East, whose ecclesiastical jurisdiction and cultural influence extended during the early medieval period as far as China. This volume contains the Acts of Mar Mar? in Syriac and a relevant account from Kitab al-Majdal in Arabic, both translated for the first time into English. This annotated translation of the Acts of Mar Mar? offers specialists and lay people alike a major source dealing with the early history of Christianity in the Middle East.
