Abstract In the context of Syriac Christianity (4th-8th century CE), the use of choral singing was very common right from the beginning. Although it has not always been appreciated by sources, it unquestionably appears as a practiced and effective instrument in numerous theological and doctrinal disputes that shook Syriac Christianity.
Through the sweetness of a heavenly song the groups of women approached God, indirectly affirming the authority of the doctrinal principles that inspired their songs.
This paper aims to investigate this complex phenomenon through the analysis of some written texts and iconographic elements available.
