I think I'll make this a sticky.  Also, I would like the purpose to be broader, to include other resources on the Oriental Orthodox besides theology, including history and culture.

And please, when someone posts a link, don't just make it a bare link.  Please give a short explanation of what the link is about.   Smiley

The Oriental Orthodox Library has works from various Oriental Orthodox Church Fathers:

http://www.orthodox-library.com/catalogue.htm

It also has Fr. V.C.Samuel's The Council of Chalcedon Re-Examined, which is an excellent resource for understanding the Council of Chalcedon, and the various Christological issues involved, from an Oriental Orthodox point of view.

http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/the-council-of-chalcedon-re-examined/194480


Another excellent book about the Christology of the Oriental Orthodox is Fr. Peter's new book, Orthodox Christology:

OK, now for the important stuff:

http://www.recipehound.com/Recipes/armenia.html

Armenian recipes.   Grin

Since Oriental Orthodox cuisine is the best in the world, I'm going to ask our posters here to not hold back, but link to other recipe sources, if they exist.  (We should definitely get some converts out of this.   Smiley   )

Dear Salpy,

Do know a good Armenian Church in NJ that has a huge bookstore in their church, that might include something like HH Catholicos Karekin's "The Council of Chalcedon and the Armenian Church"?

You can find the churches in New Jersey here:

http://www.armenianchurch.net/parishes/index.php

You may want to try calling them.  Also, Fr. Shnork Souin's church I think is in New Jersey.

You also may want to contact St. Vartan Bookstore, above.

Agreed. It makes some slightly questionable claims, but that only constitutes about 1% of it.

Also, CoptoGreek, I would recommend that you not look to me just because I am assertive and opinionated, for I am not even an initiated member of the Oriental churches.

I was just at the Western Diocese in Burbank, and they have copies of the above book.  The bookstore manager is Sergey:

The Coptic Orthodox Electronic Publishing Australia website has loads of docs for download: http://www.coepaonline.org/. Even better if you can get The Christian Orthodox e-Reference Library which they publish: http://www.coepaonline.org/products.php?nav=products&page=coerl.

I have many more links I can post when I get home to my laptop which browser has them bookmarked.

I apologize for the lateness of this post, I didn't see this thread until now. Fwiw, here is a list of books that I compiled back when I was exploring the Oriental Orthodox/Eastern Orthodox dialogues (though I didn't end up buying most of them)... I subtracted the books from the list that were of a traditionalist or solely Eastern Orthodox tone/content...

A History of Christianity in Asia: Beginnings to 1500
Among the Copts
The Arab Christian: A History in the Middle East
Christ in Christian Tradition - From the Council of Chalcedon (451) to Gregory the Great (590-604)
Christ in East and West
Christ in Eastern Christian Thought
Christians in the Arab East: A Political Study
The Christological Controversy
The Church of the East: Apostolic & Orthodox
The Church of the East: An Illustrated History of Assyrian Christianity
Committed to Christian Unity
The Council of Chalcedon Reexamined
Cyril of Alexandria
Does Chalcedon Divide or Unite?: Towards Convergence in Orthodox Christology
The Early Coptic Papacy: The Egyptian Church and Its Leadership in Late Antiquity
The Empress Theodora: Partner of Justinian
The Ethiopian Tewahedo Church: An Integrally African Church
The History of the Patriarchs of the Coptic Orthodox Church to 849 AD
Imperial Unity And Christian Divisions: The Church from 450-680 A.D.
The Importance and Contribution of the Oriental Orthodox Churches
Justinian and the Making of the Syrian Orthodox Church
On the Unity of Christ
Oriental Orthodox-Roman Catholic Inter-Orthodox Discussion
Prayers from the East: Traditions of Eastern Christianity
Restoring the Unity in Faith: The Orthodox-Oriental Orthodox Theological Dialogue: An Introduction with Texts
The Selected Letters of St Severus
Severus of Antioch
St. Cyril of Alexandria: The Christological Controversy : Its History, Theology, and Texts
Towards a Common Christology
Towards Unity: The Theological Dialogue Between The Orthodox Church And The Oriental Orthodox Churches
Two Thousand Years of Coptic Christianity
What is the Christian Orient?
Your will be done: Orthodoxy in mission : CWME consultation of Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Churches

Most or all of these books should be available through Amazon (or in the cases of a few, Lulu)

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;

Aghapy,

This is a link to the site of the Southern United States Diocese. It's extensive in its articles comprising theology, faith, history, etc.

http://suscopts.org/resources/literature/

Also, this is a link from the same site that has a question and answer section containing hundreds of questions from different people, all answered by H.G Bishop Youssef who is the bishop of the diocese.

Probably the closest thing to Ancient Faith Radio for the Copts would be http://orthodoxsermons.org/, though it's mostly sermons from St. Mark's in Washington D.C. (its place of origin, I think). Still, I like the interface (the search by speaker function is really nice), and the sermons by Bishop Suriel and Fr. Pishoy Salama have really helped me a lot.

Saint Mark Church in Los Angeles has many archived videos of sermons, Liturgies and classes. All are are very well presented.

Im actually surprised that the copts dont have anything being as technologically focused as they are :-p, maybe they do and its just not in English too lol
I know that those at Ancient Faith would be open and interested (I know the founders personally).  IIRC one obstacle was copyright on the materials they were trying to gather, as they looked at Syriac and Coptic CDs I had.

AFR seemed quite open to the OO at first, but I feel like that's changed over time; one can assume why.

Dunno about the Syriacs, but as for the Copts, there's no real concept of "intellectual property" for Church produced material.  They could probably contact Bishop David to get some guidance and/or permission. I can try to help get them in touch with him, if needed.

Zeitschrift der Deutschen Morgenländischen Gesellschaft (ZDMG)

From Roger Pearse:

Quote
I have just discovered what looks like all the issues of the Zeitschrift der Deutschen Morgenländischen Gesellschaft online, for free, up to 2005, here:

http://menadoc.bibliothek.uni-halle.de/dmg/periodical/structure/2327

It includes indexes, supplements and all. You can’t download whole volumes, but you can download the individual articles you want.  The scans are greyscale, and good quality.

This journal is very important for Syriac studies, I know.  Probably for Arabic also.  And it’s all here.  Wow.

http://www.roger-pearse.com/weblog/?p=8061

It's mostly German, but here are some interesting articles in English:

A Syriac Chronicle of the year 846
Brooks, E. W. 
ZDMG › Bd. 51 (1897)

Notes on the Syriac Chronicle of 846
Brooks, E. W. 
ZDMG › Bd. 52 (1898)

The Chronological Canon of James of Edessa
By Brooks, E. W.

This is more specifically linguistically-focused, but of course usually contains some explicitly Christian material due to the population it covers: Journal of Assyrian Academic Studies. It hasn't been updated in a while (latest issue is 2010; maybe it's not being published anymore), but through the table of contents link on the front page you can access issues dating back to 1986.

Coptic Orthodox Patrological Theology (COPT)

What is COPT and what do we aim to do?
COPT stands for Coptic Orthodox Patrological Theology.  In other words, COPT is the study of Coptic Orthodox theology through the lens of the Church Fathers.

Our group aims to have in-depth discussions about various theological and spiritual topics.  We hold frequent meetings, which are open to all English-speaking college/graduate students and post-graduates.  Our meetings are through telephone conferencing, so that participation is not limited by geography.  We email participants in advance of each meeting with detailed meeting information.  Just make sure to RSVP or Register to receive our emails.

Another way to get involved is through our website forums.  When it comes to technical theology, sometimes the ability to write down your thoughts and edit them before sharing goes a long way.

Pastoral Guidance
As of February 9, 2012, Father Peter Farrington, a priest of the British Orthodox Church within the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate, graciously accepted our request to be involved in COPT and to provide the group with pastoral help and support.

Father Peter became Orthodox in 1994 from an Evangelical Protestant background and has not ceased to contribute to increasing knowledge of Oriental Orthodox theology and spirituality.  He does this in relation to mission work, ecumenical dialogue and education of the Oriental Orthodox faithful.

Father Peter has a variety of local and national responsibilities in Great Britain. He is the pastor of St. Alban and St Athanasius Orthodox Church in Kent, England and is also the National Co-ordinator of the British Orthodox Fellowship, the Secretary of the Council of Oriental Orthodox Churches and the Co-secretary of each of the Anglican-Oriental Orthodox Regional Forum and the Catholic-Oriental Orthodox Forum.

A bit dated but should still be useful.

International Association for Coptic Studies
Editor: Tito Orlandi

COPTIC TEACHING IN THE WORLD
This is a list of academic institutions where Coptic language, or literature, or art, or archaeology, or theology, etc., are taught. The colleagues are kindly requested to send information on this subject. The best way to send information is e-mail; short of that, please send a typescript so good as to be easily read by a scanner. This will very much speed the work. The list will be published periodically in the Newsletter.

The Editor has initially listed the courses of which he had become aware. This information is far from complete and up to date, but it will become hopefully so, with the help of the colleagues.

Resources for Medieval Nubia
http://www.medievalnubia.info/dev/index.php/Main_Page

A Guide to the Texts of Medieval Nubia
By Grzegorz Ochała and Giovanni R. Ruffini

This document proposes a set of citation standards for textual evidence from medieval Nubia.  It is intended to supersede the ad hoc arrangements used in earlier works on the period, and generally follows the model for the documentary papyri from Greco-Roman Egypt presented in the Checklist of Editions of Greek, Latin, Demotic, and Coptic Papyri, Ostraca and Tablets (http://scriptorium.lib.duke.edu/papyrus/texts/clist.html). It provides: (1) individual abbreviations for every monograph or substantial collection of published texts; (2) a bibliography to serve the eventual creation of an SB.Nub. to collect all texts published in isolated journal articles or book chapters; and (3) a forthcoming site-by-site guide to the unpublished texts.

http://www.medievalnubia.info/dev/index.php/Guide_to_the_Texts


the Database of Medieval Nubian Texts (DBMNT)

This website is the result of four years of research on the subject “Chronological systems of Christian Nubia”, concluded with a monograph under this very title (G. Ochała, Chronological Systems of Christian Nubia [= The Journal of Juristic Papyrology Supplement Series 16], Warsaw 2011). The present database is an integral part of the book and, although the database can, should, and hopefully will exist on its own, the book is at least difficult to use without the database. This is because the written sources analysed in the monograph are essentially referred to, for the sake of convenience, by their catalogue numbers, given to them arbitrarily while preparing an offline version of the DBMNT and preserved in the online one.

I don't know if I should post this here but check this site out...

http://turabdin.info/

It's a (growing) timeline of the Syriac Orthodox heartland Tur Abdin that I have worked on for a while (the site will not work well on small/low resolution screens, so preferably not to be viewed with mobile phones). There are pre/non-Christian stuff on it but there will hopefully be a lot of Syriac Orthodox material on it as well (there already is some). For example, there was a schism in the Church between 1364 and 1839 when Tur Abdin had its own Patriarch apart from the Patriarch of Antioch. It also has a Facebook page that you can get to from the menu on the site.

Please alert me if you visit the website and don't understand early on what you're supposed to do or if you experience any errors. Or if you have any other kind of feedback.

Coptic SCRIPTORIUM

Coptic SCRIPTORIUM (Sahidic Corpus Research: Internet Platform for Interdisciplinary multilayer Methods) is a collaborative, digital project created by Caroline T. Schroeder (University of the Pacific) and Amir Zeldes (Humboldt University, Berlin).

Coptic SCRIPTORIUM provides a platform for interdisciplinary and computational research in texts in the Coptic language, particularly the Sahidic dialect.  As an open-source, open-access initiative, the SCRIPTORIUM technologies and corpus function as a collaborative environment for digital research by any scholars working in Coptic. It provides:

tools to process Coptic texts
a searchable, richly-annotated corpus of texts using the ANNIS search and visualization architecture
visualizations of Coptic texts
a collaborative platform for scholars to use and contribute to the project
research results generated from the tools and corpus

We hope SCRIPTORIUM will serve as a model for future digital humanities projects utilizing historical corpora or corpora in languages outside of the Indo-European and Semitic language families.

I haven't read this book, but I heard it's chock full of pastoral wisdom and spirituality.  The late bishop HG Bishop Youannis of Gharbia wrote "Paradise of the Spirit" that I've been told by many Copts of old times was an excellent piece of writing, now translated in English:

The Oriental Orthodox Library has works from various Oriental Orthodox Church Fathers:

http://www.orthodox-library.com/catalogue.htm

It also has Fr. V.C.Samuel's The Council of Chalcedon Re-Examined, which is an excellent resource for understanding the Council of Chalcedon, and the various Christological issues involved, from an Oriental Orthodox point of view.

http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/the-council-of-chalcedon-re-examined/194480


Another excellent book about the Christology of the Oriental Orthodox is Fr. Peter's new book, Orthodox Christology:

http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/orthodox-christology/10969273

There is now a second edition of Fr. Peter's Orthodox Christology, with additional articles in it:
