Book Description

In the spring of 1967 the first group of Assyrians came to Sweden. During the fifty years since then, the Assyrian community has grown steadily and is today one of the largest immigrant groups in Sweden. Many of them are born in Sweden and are fully integrated Swedish citizens. Others have come recently because of the continued persecution they suffer in their homelands.

This book describes how the Assyrians arrived in Sweden, how they established churches and organizations, how the lively debate went about their right to stay in the country, how they achieved as entrepreneurs and in soccer, and how their relationship with Swedish society has changed over the years. The book also features a number of interviews, giving a variety of Swedish Assyrians the chance to tell us directly of their experiences of what it is like to live in Sweden.

Svante Lundgren, ThD, is a researcher at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Lund University.

This book is a translation of the Swedish original of ‘Assyrierna – Femtio år i Sverige‘, by Svante Lundgren, which was published by Nineveh Press in December 2017.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
