Description

Middle Eastern Christians have a long tradition of interacting with Europe.  As other minorities they have also "emerged" through relations of European powers with the region.  The historical circulation of people and ideas is also relevant for identities of Middle Eastern Christians who have settled in Europe in the past decades.  This volume, stemming from an interdisciplinary workshop in Salzburg 2016, brings together both perspectives of entanglement.

Andreas Schmoller is historian and researcher at the Centre for the Study of Eastern Christianity at the University of Salzburg/Austria.
