Christine B. Lindner. "Quick Study: Labiba Kurani's Teaching Certificate (1887)." NEST Theological Review 34 (2013), 125-131.
In this quick study, Christine B. Lindner presents the series of teaching certificates held b the NEST Special Collections, focusing on one that drew her attention: that for a woman Labiba Kurani. Lindner questions why these certificates were placed in the NEST Library, rather than distributed to the families, speculating that the answer might reveal an conflict between the American missionaires and the Ottoman authorities.
