Nestorian Christianity in the Mongol Hordes

Nestorian missionaries made it all the way into the steps of Central Asia where they found willing converts.

No one ever seems to mention that even some of the leaders of the Mongol hordes were in fact, Christians.

To be more precise, Christianity existed more or less harmoniously with animistic beliefs in the “Eternal Blue Sky” or ‘Khukh Tengri.’
