Show Summary Details


This chapter details the second decade of the Assyrian Mission from 1896–1904. During this period, conditions for many of the Syrians in both Persia and Turkey became more troubled; Archbishop Benson died; and a Russian Orthodox mission arrived in Persia which looked likely to take away the Mission's clients and its reason for existence. The worst did not happen: the Mission remained in place and even its ideology and morale were largely undamaged. But the scale of its operations was sharply reduced.
