This study aims at investigating the role of Arabic-speaking Rūm Orthodox Christians in the Arabization and printing of the Bible during the Ottoman period. It provides information about the framework of each translation project, its stakeholders, and the reasons and motives behind it. To show the characteristics of these projects, the study analyzes their common elements in light of their equivalents in other Western projects.
