ATHANASIUS GAMMAL

ATHANASIUS GAMMAL d. 630631. Jacobite patriarch from 594595 to 630631 and a native of Samosata. Athanasius was a monk of a monastery at Qennesre. As patriarch he chose to live at the convent of Mar Zakai, near Callinicum. In 616 at Ennaton, he was reconciled with the sister monophysite church in Egypt. In 630 he took part, at the head of a group of a dozen bishops, in unsuccessful theological discussions with the emperor Heraclius at MabbugHierapolis; the emperor then appointed a monothelite bishop of Antioch. Michael the Syrian cites some of his letters; he also wrote a Life of Severus of Antioch, entirely preserved in Ethiopic. A certain Daniel, described as bishop of Aleppo or of Edessa, wrote his life, under patriarch Theodore 649667 at the earliest. If this was Daniel of Aleppo, he should perhaps be identified with a Daniel ordained by patriarch Cyriac 793817. Unfortunately the text of the Berlin MS is incomplete; the Life summarized by Michael the Syrian may be inspired by it. Baumstark 185-186; E. Sachau, Verzeichnis der syrischen Handschriften der Kniglichen Bibliothek zu Berlin, Berlin 1899, 523- 524; Michel le Syrien, Chronicon, ed.
