The Syriac Gazetteer is a geographical reference work for places relevant to Syriac studies. This includes places named in Syriac texts, places of interest to those who work on Syriac texts, and places where scholarship on Syriac is being produced. There are no temporal or spatial boundaries for the geographic database, and so it includes places relevant to any period of history useful for Syriac studies, from places mentioned in the Peshitta (Syriac) version of Genesis to modern cities in Iraq, and from ancient Edessa to Mongol-era outposts in China and Syriac diaspora communities in the United States. Readers can browse entries online, download the entire publication, and offer editorial revisions at http://syriaca.org/geo
