    Abstract:
    This chapter is from the *The Rowman & Littlefield Handbook of Christianity in the middle East* (2021). This chapter is from section five, The Story of Middle Eastern Christianity by Country and in the World Context. In this chapter, the author argues that Christianity has a lengthy and deep history in that region of Arabia known today as Saudi Arabia. Sometimes foreign, often hidden, but very real and lasting throughout even the Middle Ages. That presence continues today in the form of both expat Christians working in the country or married to subjects of House of Saud, but also secret converts to Christianity from Islam.
    Notes:
