Assyrian was used B4 the 19th century

Apr-10-2001 at 11:34 AM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

The titles Atourayeh and Ashourayeh were in use in the 16th century, as the Dominican Fr. John M. Fiey admitted to in the publication of the Eastern Syriac Church translated by Fr. Kameel H. al-Yasooai, Beirut, 1990, pp. 38. The names appeared in a Vatican document in connection with the Christians whose Patriarchate had its see in Quchanis, Hakkari. Read Odisho Malko Giwargis, We are not but from an Assyrian origin an article in Syriac, Journal of Assyrian Academic Studies, Vol. XIV, No. I, 2000, pp. 41.

Fr. Sarhad Jammo attests to the fact that the Anglicans were not the first who called the members of the Church of the East (Nestorians) by the name Atourayeh (Assyrian). He stated: The Anglicans were not the first to call the members of the Church of the East by the name Atourayeh (Assyrians), rather the name appeared in the official communique and correspondences between the Vatican and the Church of the East, three centuries before the interactions between the Anglicans and the Church of the East. Read Sarhad Jammo, The Church of the East between its two parts, Beth Nahren magazine, Vol. 95-96, pp. 201, 1996, and al-Muntada magazine, February 2000, Vol. 5, No. 3 (43), pp. 3.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
