Notes

Abstract:
Syriac is still in use as a liturgical language, and there are still monastic centres of Syriac scholarship, not only in Lebanon and Syria, but also in Turkey, for example at Mar Gabriel near Mardin. This sumptuously illuminated Gospel of St. Luke was executed by Asmar Kas Georgius for presentation, in 1955, to The Queen, who approved the suggestion that it should be offered to the School of Oriental and African Studies, where the Syriac language is studied (Text by Anna Contadini, from the exhibition catalogue: Objects of instruction : treasures of the School of Oriental and African Studies, Anna Contadini, Editor. London : SOAS, University of London, 2007.) ( en )
General Note:
Presented to HM Queen Elizabeth II in the name of the daughter of Amar Kas Georgius.
