Oriental Orthodox Christianity’s adaptations in Europe
Following their flight from the Middle East and Africa to Europe, Oriental Orthodox Christians have relied in the last 50 years on the reproduction of religious texts and on writing new ones to retain their beliefs and culture, and transmit them to new generations. As important as these publications may be as evidence of their self-understanding, they have been largely ignored by scholars, often because of their popular nature. The GlobalOrthodoxy project examines these written and digital sources to understand the ways Armenians, Copts, Syriacs, Arameans, Ethiopians and Eritreans adapted to Europe, how the texts contributed to formulating an ethnic and religious self-image, and how they contributed to Orthodoxy globally.
