Renowned Arab Christians Who Contributed to Arab Islamic Civilization

Palestinian Christians: In Their Own Words

Arab Christians made significant contributions in the areas of science, literature, medicine and more during the early Islamic era. We will be featuring some of these individuals who played an integral role in building the Arab Islamic Civilization, as published in an Arabic collection by the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies in Jordan.

HCEF is pleased to announce the initiation of this new series. It will present the views and vision of Christians who have experienced or are experiencing the Holy Land. Among them especially are the Palestinian Christians who are often overlooked, even though they matter historically, religiously, theologically, socially, and politically.
