RIFUGIO: CHRISTIANS OF THE MIDDLE EAST. Andrea Milluzzi. Schilt Publishing, Amsterdam, 2015. 180 pp. with 73 ills. and 73 reference ills. 25 x 20 cm. ISBN 9789053308431 In English.
Publisher's description: The birthplace of Christianity lies in the Iranian slopes of Mount Ararat to Mount Lebanon. Since those ancient times the rugged valleys and gorges have served as a refuge for monastic communities and those in search of solitude. Nowadays 12 million Christians are supposed to live in the Middle East, but only few of them remain to live in the region because of radical Islam and persecutions; millions have relocated to the U.K., U.S.A. and Australia. Between July 2011 and January 2014, photographer Linda Dorigo and journalist Andrea Milluzzi travelled around Iran, Lebanon, Egypt, Israel, West Bank, Gaza Strip, Jordan, Turkey and Syria. They were driven towards these small Christian communities that choose to not be part of the diaspora. While the Middle East is turned upside-down by revolutions and by a fractured war inside Islam, Christians became a religious minority, disillusioned witnesses closed in their self-defense.
