Abstract

The creation of the Syrian nation-state during the era of the French Mandate necessitated the violent suppression, and then the forgetting, of distinctly-Christian political movements and separatist impulses in its largest city, Aleppo. These movements emerged in response to an overlapping set of political challenges specific to Christians at the time. By recovering the history of these movements, the processes that led to the formation of the Syrian nation-state can be better understood.
