Heleen Murre-van den Berg is acknowledged worldwide as an authority on the history of Christianity in the Middle East, in particular from 1500 to 1850. She was the first to unlock obscure sources on Christian missions of that era for scientific analyses. Not only does she have a sterling reputation as a researcher, but she also maintains a vast network of contacts in Middle-Eastern Christian communities. Murre-van den Berg is also a popular commentator and interpreter of the present-day position of Christians in the Middle East.
