Herbs, Codices and Homilies: Sogdian Christians and Christian ‘Networks’ along the 'Silk Roads'
Research Summary: 
While the image of the Sogdian trader par excellence has been revived in the popular imagination after centuries of obscurity, the Sogdians were, of course, not only successful merchants. Through both the material and literary cultures, my research investigates the ubiquitous, though often inconspicuous, Sogdian Christian presence within Christian ‘networks’ along the so-called Silk Roads.
