Scholars conducting research in this field encounter great difficulties due to the lack of published material, even on basic historical issues. Furthermore, the division between the various disciplines often renders access to new material in an unfamiliar field exceptionally difficult. Studies in Late Antiquity and Early Islam (SLAEI) thus aims to address such difficulties by publishing monographs, text editions, and translations by scholars working in Byzantine, Arab-Islamic, and Eastern Church studies, and by literary scholars, historians, and archaeologists. The volumes in SLAEI include the papers of international workshops on specific themes, and the series as a whole seeks to promote an integrated and strongly interdisciplinary focus for research on the late antique and early medieval Near East.
