The last days of Christians in Mosul
Would Christians happily forsake Assisi or Canterbury or Cologne? Mosul's story is at least equal to that of any of these later upstarts.
Christian history in the region goes back to the earliest days of the church. As late as the eighth century, Baghdad—not Rome or Constantinople—might have been declared the center of Christianity.
