Mar Hirmiz Keldani Kilisesi - HMML Repository

Mar Hirmiz Keldani Kilisesi

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. The collection includes hagiographies, grammars, homilies, and a variety of other religious and secular literature. This repository includes two historic collections: one from the church of Hirmiz in Mardin, and one from the church of Mar Pethion in Diyarbakır/Amid, brought together in the 20th century, by the 1960s at least. They were digitized at Hirmiz in Mardin in 2012.
