Early Eastern Christianity, the title which I have given to these six Lectures, may possibly be held to be a misleading name. My Lectures are an attempt to sketch the leading characteristics of the ancient Church of Edessa and theE uphrates Valley from the earliest times to the Council of Chalcedon. The Eastern Church in popular usage generally means something geographically wider. We think of Greeks and of Russians, of Alexandria and Constantinople. But compared with the Church about which I have written these names belong to theW est, to the great Church within the Roman Empire. It is the unique distinction of the Church of theE uphrates Valley, that alone among the developments of Christianity in the ante-N icene age it had some of its roots in a realm outside the Roman Empire, and that the language of its learning and its aspirations was a tongue akin to that of Palestine.
