Northern Mesopotamia is the source for numerous ethnicities and religions. Each has played a role in forming a fragile, beautiful, yet sometimes painful cultural, religious and social montage in the region. Over the course of millennia, under numberless rulers and regimes, and through successive conflicts, many of these once historic majorities gradually faded into the ascending Arab and Islamic milieu. Within this ethnic and religious mosaic comprising Iraq, one finds a relatively large Christian community. Digging deeper still one discovers a small remaining remnant of Armenians. Long ago this ancient Christian people dominated the Armenian Highland, territory now located in Eastern Turkey. Historical evidence indicates an Armenian presence in Mesopotamia for well over several thousand years. With this as background, the paper is a brief consideration of the Christian minorities—chiefly the small Armenian community—located in Iraqi territory officially under the control of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), generally based on the author's field-work in Iraqi Kurdistan from December 2009 to March 2010.
