Assyrian Book endowment Funds

Nov-09-2000 at 00:10 AM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

In order to promote Assyrian studies through American Universities, various Assyrian Book and library endowment Funds have been established. Below is a list of such Funds and a short description about them including a contact point or addresses for those interested. Please support these wonderful Assyrian projects.

1. The David B. Perley Memorial Assyrian Fund.
This endowment was established in 1979 by the family and friends of Dr. David B. Perley to honor an active and devoted member of the Assyrian-American community. The purpose of the fund is to promote the development of research materials on the history, culture, literature and language of the Assyrians since the 17th century. Specifically, the Fund uses income from the endowment to subsidize the publication of works devoted primarily to the Assyrians and second for the acquisition of archival materials, collections and other rare historical materials. All donations are tax deductible.

For further questions and donations contact:
NELC Harvard University
6 Divinity Ave.
Cambridge, Ma. 02138

2. The Mishael and Lillie Naby Assyrian Lecture Fund.
The daughter and son of the Rev. Mishael Naby (1898-1980) and Rabi Lillie Yohannan (1906-1991), two Assyrians from the Urmia region of Iran, established this endowment Fund in 1997. The lives of these two Assyrians were disrupted but not destroyed by the massacre of the Assyrians during World War One. The purpose of the Mishael and Lillie Naby Assyrian Lecture Fund is to provide for the hosting of one or more lectures, on an annual basis, at the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, Harvard University, on a topic related to Assyrian culture and history during the medieval and modern periods.

While it is expected that the University will collect materials in all necessary languages, particular attention is directed to Assyrian language materials, including manuscripts.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
