Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a reprint of a book originally published in 1841, and as such it has many merits. The early part is a report of the travels of the author in Palestine and his commnentary on what he sees and finds. This is fascinating, as it comes from what is now, since the disruption of all the communities by the creation of Israel, a lost world.
The fly in the ointment is that you have to wait until page 171 before he announces that he's not actually talking about 'Nestorians'! He acknowledges the definition of Nestorian, but then admits that what he is describing would be known, nowadays, as a Jewish-Christian sect such as Nazoreans. His thesis is that they originate from the 'lost tribes' of Israel. This may be true, but he is a bit hazy as to where the 'Christian' bit came from. The more recent explanation that they originated from the exiles of James' Jerusalem Church after the fall of Jerusalem seems a better fit to the facts, with perhaps the indiginous Jewish population of the region (Approx the east of moderb Turkey and the north of Iraq) simply converting. Whether they were the ten tribes is a tricky one, but he makes a good argument.
