Christians from the Middle East have been migrating to Europe, and Germany in particular, for decades. This anthology is a collection of essays and articles from a small conference on “Religious Fragmentation as a Factor of Conflict” that took place from 23 to 24 April 2019, and a conference on “Europe and the Migration of the Christian Communities from the Middle East” held from 27 to 29 September 2021, both organised by Professor Martin Tamcke (Chair of Oriental Church History, University of Goettingen). In this volume pioneering research on migration among Christians from the Middle East (by Merten for instance) is published alongside the work of postgraduate students, particularly from the neighbouring research project at Radboud University in Nijmegen (Rewriting Global Orthodoxy: Oriental Christians in Europe, 1970–2020) conducted by Heleen Murre-van den Berg. The conference endeavoured to include matters of overall environment (such as the legal status of religious minorities in Islam). The book chronicles the migration of Christians from the Middle East, their motives, and their attempts to find a place in society once they arrived in a new country.
