This was a geographical and historical misnomer as Chaldea proper was in fact only the plain in the far southeast formed by the deposits of the Euphrates and the Tigrisextending about four hundred miles along the course of these rivers and averaging about a hundred miles in width.

After an eighteen-month siege, Jerusalem was captured in BC, thousands of Jews were deported to Babylon, and Solomon’s Temple was razed to the ground. Like their Assyrian relations, the Wsiria had to campaign yearly in order to control their colonies. They appear to have migrated into southern Babylonia from asiriq Levant at some unknown point between xaldeo end of the reign of Ninurta-kudurri-usur II a contemporary of Tiglath-Pileser II circa BC, and the start of the reign of Marduk-zakir-shumi I in BC, although there is no historical proof of their existence prior to the late s BC.

The evidence points clearly to their being one and the same people as, and hailing from the same region as, the Assyrians. At the center of the city rose the giant ziggurat called Etemenanki”House of the Frontier Between Heaven and Earth,” which lay next to the Temple of Marduk. Rome then used the term Chaldeans to indicate the members of the Church of the East in Communion with Rome primarily in order to avoid the terms NestorianAssyrian and Syriacwhich were theologically unacceptable, having connotations to churches doctrinally and politically at odds with The Vatican.

Nabopolassar’s position, and the fate of the Assyrian empire, was sealed when he entered into an alliance with another of Assyria’s former vassals, the Medes, the now dominant people of what was to become Persia.

With the Scythians and Cimmerians vanquished, the Medes and Persians pledging loyalty, and the Egyptians defeated and ejected from southern Canaan, Sargon II was free at last to deal with the Chaldeans, Babylonians and Elamites.

This language in the form of Eastern Aramaic neo-Aramaic dialects still remains the mother-tongue of the now Christian Assyrian people of northern Iraq, north-east Syria, south-eastern Turkey and north-western Iran to this day.

The term “Chaldean Catholic” should thus be understood purely as a Christian denomination much like Baptist or Anglican rather than a racial, ethnic or historical term, as the modern Chaldean Catholics are accepted as Assyrian people, [16] later converts to Catholicism, and long indigenous to the Assyrian homeland in northern Mesopotamia, rather than relating to long extinct Chaldeans who hailed from the Levant and settled in the far southeastern parts of Mesopotamia before wholly disappearing during the sixth century BC.

The next 22 years were peaceful, and neither the Babylonians nor Chaldeans posed a threat to the dominance of Ashurbanipal.
