The Assyrian Church of the East is the apostolic church of Mesopotamia, Persia, India and the Far East, and is one of the modern versions of the older Church of the East, which was divided from the other apostolic churches by the Nestorian Schism during the 5th century. Today the Assyrian Church of the East has about a half a million adherents which are scattered mostly over Iraq, India, and the United States.
