This Ph.D. thesis is a political, social and economic study of the Christians of the Jazira during the period 17-132 A.H./638-750 A.D. More specifically doctrinal aspects are not dealt with here, since they have already received considerable attention from many scholars and researchers. This subject was chosen mainly because the history of the Christians of the Jazira in the early Islamic period has suffered from a lack of academic interest; this is in contrast to the history of the Jazira before the rise of Islam which has been well researched and investigated.
