Summary/Abstract: Unlike Syria and Palestine, Iraq was never a predominantly Christian land. Nevertheless, Iraq has a long history of Christian presence and one of the oldest Christian communities in the world. Christians, like Muslims and Jews, always played an important role in Iraqi society and even politics. Although the number of Christians declined in recent years, the diversity of Christian denominations in Iraq is still remarkable.
