Talk:Syriac Catholic Church

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


The Syrian Catholic Church is an offshoot of the Assyrian Apostolic Church (changed in the 1950s to the Syrian Orthodox Church), popularly known as Jacobite. The conversion of parts of the Jacobite community to Catholicism began in the 17th century but took about two centuries to stabilize. The movement was centered in Ottoman Aleppo (now in Syria) operating under the influence of French diplomats and missionaries. Today the head of this Church, the Patriarch of Antioch (one of many), resides in Beirut. The language of this community is Syriac and Arabic for liturgy and for vernacular use. With a considerable portion of the community is diaspora outside the Middle East , the main communities in the Middle East are located in northern Iraq (around Mosul), in the Aleppo area, and in Lebanon.

I do not think this is correct. The Assyrian Apostolic Church is Nestorian while the Syrian Orthodox Church is miaphysite. 3abos (talk) 01:10, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
