From Mesopotamia to the Levant and Egypt, the Christian communities have in common that they date back to the first hours of Christianity, that they adopted the Arabic language from the 9th to the 10th century while having preserved the memory of their initial languages (Syriac, Greek, Coptic) in their liturgy, that they shared the status of dhimmis under the Arabs as well as the Ottomans, and that they have maintained close links with the West, making them crossroads between the East and the Occident. Their cultural and artistic wealth reflects their age, their vitality through the ages and their place in worlds subject to various influences.

Based on the latest research and abundantly illustrated, this study establishes the most exhaustive panorama possible of the plurality and richness of Eastern Christian art - architecture, frescoes, mosaics, woodwork, goldsmith's and silversmith's art, illuminations, icon paintings, textiles... - from works preserved in museums, communities and private collections. The book follows a chronological thread, from the origins of Christian art to the Arab-Muslim conquest, then from the time of the Umayyads and Abbasids to the medieval era and the Ottoman Empire.
