Qadishe (from the Syriac word meaning “saints”) is a scholarly catalogue of over 1,000persons venerated in the Syriac Christian traditions. Qadishe includes entries for saints native to the Syriac-speaking world as well as for biblical figures and saints from other linguistic or cultural traditions who were appropriated into Syriac religious memory. Individual descriptions of each saint include name variants (in Syriac as well as in translation), biographical information such as death dates and related persons, and bibliographies of primary and secondary literature including accounts of the saint’s life. For places and texts associated with a saint, Qadishe provides references to related information in The Syriac Gazetteer and the The Bibliotheca Hagiographica Syriaca Electronica. Readers can access the entries and offer editorial revisions at http://syriaca.org/saints.
