About Gorgias Press


Gorgias Press was founded in 2001 and is an independent publisher of books and journals in history, languages, and religious studies. Its specific subject areas include Near-Eastern studies, Arabic and Islamic studies, archaeology, bible studies, classical studies, early Christianity, Judaism, linguistics, and Syrian studies.

Gorgias Press was originally founded by George and Christine Kiraz as a specialist press modeled on their own research interests. With his background in computer linguistics, George Kiraz wished to bring together the latest technology with research in the humanities. As a purely online publisher, Gorgias Press has been able to focus on rarely researched areas that would previously have been unprofitable. It has become well known for its pioneering work in the fields of linguistics, religion, and particularly Syrian studies.

Gorgias’s philosophy of publishing for the sake of knowledge rather than profit has attracted many new authors, rapidly expanding its areas of specialization. Today, the press publishes up to 60 new titles a year, including both monographs and edited collections.
