Mark Shuttleworth (who wrote the booklet on Theosis) sends word that Shroro: The Syriac Orthodox Christian Digest now posts its content online. Most of the material deals with the life of Syriac Orthodox believers today, as they’re dispersed throughout the world. But there’s also much good material on Christian antiquity. In the current issue, Susan Ashbrook Harvey discusses Women in the Syrian Tradition, with insights on the difference Christianity made by introducing the life of consecrated virginity. You’ll also find a good Life of St. Basil and much, much more. Most stories are accompanied by beautiful icons. Check it out.
