Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a song, which describes the bridge of Zakho. The author calls this bridge as the bridge of Dalale. This was in the time of the Abbasids. The songs were sung by the informant Dawid ʾAdamin who grew up and lived in the villages of Barwar in northern Iraq. The majority of the Assyrians of Barwar belong to the Church of the East. In the first half of the twentieth century a few families became Catholic, following the adoption of Catholicism by their bishop, Mar Isho Yawalaha in 1904.

Keywords: Barwar villages; bridge of Zakho; Dawid ʾAdamin
