Chaldean Cathedral - HMML Repository

Chaldean Cathedral

Large collection of East Syriac, Arabic, and Garshuni manuscripts digitized in partnership with Centre Numérique des Manuscrits Orientaux (CNMO). One of the large collections of Syriac manuscripts in and around the city of Mardin, this one stands out by virtue of its Chaldean rather than Syriac Orthodox origin. Collection includes hagiographies, grammars, homilies, and a variety of other religious and secular literature.
