April 7, 2017 - Registration deadline April 5 This workshop will concentrate on East Syriac Christianity in the Mongol Empire, from the rise of Chinggis Khan (d. 1227), through the evolution of the the unified Mongol Empire that he created into four separate states—the Il-khanate in Persia (1256–1335), the Chaghatayid Khanate in Central Asia (1242–1347), the Qipchaq Khanate (Golden Horde) on the northern steppe (1256–1360) and the Yuan dynasty in Mongolia and China (1260–1368)—to the end of Mongol power in Asia and the Middle East in the late 14th century, after which East Syriac Christianity either vanished or was seriously diminished in its presence and influence.
