Christianity in Northern Iraq (2017) { 48 images } Created 14 Dec 2018

Christianity has a long history in northern Iraq, and the Christian community, which dwindled considerably after the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, suffered a further blow when the Islamic State (ISIS, or ISIL) swept across much of the region in 2014. I visited for four weeks in May 2017. These pictures come from Erbil, Qaraqosh, Mosul, Kirkuk, and Koya.
