Hindiyya, Mystic and Criminal, 1720-1798

A Political and Religious Crisis in Lebanon

by Bernard Heyberger 

ISBN: 9780227173886

“[…] a solid work of historical research, culling the mines of the archives of the Propaganda Fide in Rome as well as the Maronite Patriach in Bkirki. The bibliography is well laid out, noting workings on local history and culture of the Maronites […] as well as contemporary social and gender studies focusing upon the Western and Oriental Catholic traditions […] Hindiyya, Mystic and Criminal is an extremely important resource in the area of Middle East Christianity, which  reveals the complicated relationships between the Oriental Catholic Churches and Rome.”
