Christians in the Middle East - only at museums? (completed)


About the project

This was a project with 11 researchers from the Department of Cultural Studies and Oriental Languages and the Faculty of Theology, University of Oslo, cooperating to produce a book on the situation of Christians in the Middle East.


Christians in the Middle East are presently in a vulnerable situation. In this project we were aiming to illuminate

  • the main reasons for the problems confronting the Christians
  • how Christians in various countries are experiencing being marginalized
  • the strategies Christians are choosing in order to consolidate their position as equal citizens


Final result published as a book in Norwegian: Kristne I Midtøsten. Kamp om tilhørighet (2015), Cappelen Damm Akademisk.
