|Syriac Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and All the East|
|Church||Syriac Orthodox Church|
|Term ended||July 595|
|Successor||Athanasius I Gammolo|
|Died||9 July 595|
Julian was a monk at the Monastery of Qinnasrin and later became a disciple and secretary of Peter III, the Patriarch of Antioch. He wrote a commentary on the career of Peter III, and was chosen to succeed him and was consecrated in May 591. Julian led the Syriac Orthodox Church for over four years before his death in 595.
- Julian II is also counted as Julian I as the first patriarch of the Syriac Orthodox Church by that name, however, the Syriac Orthodox Church, which claims descent from the Church of Antioch, considers Julian (r. 471-476) to be the first by that name.
