Summary This book provides a history of the Chaldean Catholic Church from its origins as a numerically minor faction of the East Syriac Christian tradition (Church of the East) in northern Mesopotamia in the sixteenth century through to its modern status as a significant religious, social, economic and cultural contributor to Iraqi life. It argues for the gradual and consistent development of a Chaldean identity grounded and incarnated in the Mesopotamian-Iraqi environment yet open to engaging with cultures throughout the Middle East and West Asia and, especially since 2003 to Europe, north America and Australasia
