John Lamoreaux’s Adventures in Christian Arabic

Let’s give a warm welcome to a new blogger, John Lamoreaux, who has just created his own site at, and started a blog (although I think he ought to use WordPress for the blog bit, so that he gets all the links etc).

John works in the neglected field of Christian literature in the Arabic language.  This contains translations of all sorts of things which have not survived in the original, as well as interesting historical texts.  There’s no proper handbook to the field in English — the only real handbook, Georg Graf’s Geschichte der christlichen arabischen Literatur, in 5 volumes, being in German.

Anyone working in the field is breaking new ground.
