A Short History of St Luke’s Church Isfahan, Iran

H.B. Dehqani-Tafti

This short history was written in 1959 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of St Luke’s Church in Isfahan. The booklet mentions the beginnings of Christianity in Iran, and how the “Church Missionary Society” started work in the southern part of the country, as a result of which St Luke’s came to be built. Several pictures show the alterations made for the building’s Golden Jubilee. Sincere thanks are due to Pete Gardner Photography in London for having recreated this booklet from an old copy, preparing it for print.
