This volume contains papers from the Third Woodbrooke-Mingana Symposium on Arab Christianity and Islam (September 1998) on the theme of Arab Christianity in Bilad al-Sham (Greater Syria) in the pre-Ottoman Period . It presents aspects of Syrian Christian life and thought during the first millennium of Islamic rule. Among the eight contributing scholars are Sidney Griffith on ninth-century Christological controversies, Samir K. Samir on the Prophet Muhammed seen through Arab Christian eyes, Lawrence Conrad on the physician Ibn Butlan, and Lucy-Anne Hunt on Muslim influence on Christian book illustrations.
