George Badger, East India Company chaplain and Arabist, was sent by William Howley, Archbishop of Canterbury, as delegate to the Eastern Churches, and more especially the Nestorians of Kurdistan in 1842 and again in 1850. Apart from his travels in Kurdistan the work contains accounts of visits to Antioch and the Black Sea. The Nestorians exercised a fascination for Anglicans in the nineteenth century from their having been virtually isolated from the rest of Christendom since the fifth century.
