Quite a coincidence

that right when Iraq is embattled in sectarian conflict that has a Kurdish component to it (in addition to the Sunni-Shia one), I am in the middle of "From the Holy Mountain" by William Dalrymple.

The book traces eastern christianity through out the erstwhile Byzantine empire.
