Sabrishoʿ V ibn al-Masihi was Patriarch of the Church of the East from 1226 to 1256.

Sources[edit]

Brief accounts of Sabrishoʿ's patriarchate are given in the Ecclesiastical Chronicle of the Jacobite writer Bar Hebraeus (floruit 1280) and in the ecclesiastical histories of the fourteenth-century Nestorian writers ʿAmr and Sliba.

Sabrisho's patriarchate[edit]

The following account of Sabrishoʿ's patriarchate is given by Bar Hebraeus:

In the year 623 of the Arabs [AD 1226], on the twelfth day of the fourth month, on the first Sunday after Easter, Sabrishoʿ bar Masihi, metropolitan of Daquqa, was consecrated catholicus, because he bribed the caliph al-Zahir with gold. This happened because he had won the respect of the caliph's brothers, who were distinguished noblemen, just as he himself was an honourable man, of a pleasant disposition, straightforward and affable, and on that account loved by all. He died on a Sunday, on the twenty-third day of the fourth month of the year 654 of the Arabs [AD 1256], after fulfilling his office for thirty-one years, and was buried in the church of Sergius and Bacchus in Karkha. He was succeeded by Makkikha, metropolitan of Nisibis.[1]
