The church in Iraq by Fernando Filoni( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The persecution of the church in Iraq is one of the great tragedies of the twenty-first century. In this short, yet sweeping account, Cardinal Filoni, the former Papal Nuncio to Iraq, shows us the people and the faith in the land of Abraham and Babylon, a region that has been home to Persians, Parthians, Byzantines, Mongols, Ottomans, and more. This is the compelling and rich history of the Christian communities in a land that was once the frontier between Rome and Persia, for centuries the crossroads of East and West for armies of invaders and merchants, and the cradle of all human civilization. Its unique cultural legacy has, in the past few years, been all but obliterated. The Church in Iraq is both a diligent record and loving testimonial to a community that is struggling desperately to exist. Filoni guides the reader through almost two thousand years of history, telling the story of a people who trace their faith back to the Apostle Thomas. The diversity of peoples and churches is brought deftly into focus through the lens of their interactions with the papacy, but The Church in Iraq does not shy away from discussing the local political, ethnic, and theological tensions that have resulted in centuries of communion and schism. Never losing his focus on the people to whom this book is so clearly dedicated, Cardinal Filoni has produced a personal and engaging history of the relationship between Rome and the Eastern Churches. This book has much to teach its reader about the church in the near East. Perhaps its most brutal lesson is the ease with which such a depth of history and culture can be wiped away in a few short decades. -- Provided by publisher

El presente volumen pretende ofrecer un conocimiento, un poco más adecuado, del nacimiento, la evolución y el desarrollo de la comunidad cristiana en Mesopotamia.En esta tierra, en efecto, existe un mosaico de nacionalidades, de religiones, de confesiones, sin las cuales estaría destruida para siempre; lo cual es reconocido también por eminentes autoridades musulmanas y por simples ciudadanos. Y esto es positivo. Pero es necesario facilitar la permanencia y la vida de las minorías. Este libro nace para dar testimonio de esas víctimas; de las mujeres y los hombres cristianos y no cristianos, a los que hay que dar gracias por su coraje, como también hay que dárselas a cuantos, con sacrificio y amor, hacen menos pesados sus miedos y sus preocupaciones
