Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a story about Church of Čallǝk. Čallǝk is a village in Barwar, where there is a church called Mar Muše. There were Kurdish nomads, who went down to the plain to be warm in winter, when it was cold in the mountains. When it was summer and spring, they would bring their sheep up to the summer pastures in the mountains, which are called zawzane. They were afraid and gave a gift to the church of two head of sheep. From then on, when they came down to the plain returning from the summer pastures, they would give two head of sheep. They would dwell and then again go up to the summer pastures and give a gift of two head of sheep to the church, but they would take their sheep far away, since they did not dare come onto the roof of the church.
