Christianity in Harir

On the Harir Plain ... lived Mar Yusef, the Assyrian Matran, who was the spiritual and temporal leader of the Assyrians of the Nestorian church. When he was made Bishop in Harir in 1928, the Kurds ostracised him. By 1943, when I was a frequent visitor, all sorts of Kurds would be found in his diwankhana [دیوەنخانە] (guest room), seeking the advice of this wise Christian bishop, who often showed that he knew more about the faith of Islam than they did.
