Aramaic Syriac community of Jerusalem

In the very early centuries of the Christian era, the Syriac Orthodox Christians – Aramaic speaking – settled in Jerusalem, in the so-called house of the Virgin Mary in the Syriac Quarter: this monastery, dedicated to St Mark the Evangelist, became the headquarter of the archbishopric.

About the event

Tur Abdin, in the Ottoman province of Diyarbakir (eastern Anatolia). But  during the 19th and 20th centuries, the small community changed  significantly, developing from a handful of believers attracting a few  pilgrims from time to time in the Old City to a refugee center welcoming  the survivors of the Seyfo, the genocide committed in Tur  Abdin during World War I. Besides, their dependency on the Armenian  authorities, from which they failed to free themselves, gradually  resulted into their marginalization in Arab Palestine.
