Summary This book makes available for the first time in English important works by the anti-Chalcedonian historian and biographer John Ruifus on Peter the Iberian, Theodosius of Jerusalem, and Abaa Romanus, three key figures of the Christian history of Palestine in the fifth and early sixth centuries C.E. By providing access to the Christian landscape (literally and metaphorically) in caucasian Georgia (Iberia) and Palestine in late antique and Byzantine times, this volume offers a valuable counterbalance from a minority perspective to the biographical and historical writings of the Chalcedonian apologist Cyrus of Scythopolis
