Orthodox Christian books published in Kurdish dialects for first time

Tbilisi, December 30, 2022


This autumn in Georgia, several Orthodox books were published for the first time in two Kurdish dialects: Kurmanji and Sorani.

The publications include: The Conversation of St. Seraphim of Sarov with Nicholas Motovilov on the Purpose of the Christian Life translated from Russian into the Sorani dialect by Kurd Pavel Kamchi and The Conversation of St. Seraphim of Sarov and 101 Quotations of the Holy Fathers, translated from Russian into the Kurmanji dialect.

A small prayer book was also translated from Ancient Greek, and an interview with Archimandrite Dionysios (Kalambokasa), “The Enemy is Within Us: Don’t Listen to Him,” translated from English into the Kurmanji dialect by Hierodeacon Madai Maamdi, a graduate student at the University of Athens.

There are plans to soon publish A Catechism for Children by Fr. George Maximov and the Life of the Equal-to-the-Apostles St. Nina in the Kurmanji dialect, and the Orthodox Catechism of St. Philaret of Moscow and the full Life of St. Kosmas of Aetolia in the Sorani dialect.
