Mar Shimun line is not the Sulaqa line

Apr-10-2001 at 11:49 AM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

Fr. Sarhad Jammo and few others claims that the Mar Shimun Line was a continuation of the Sulaqa line which split from the Church of the East and the Aboona Family in 1551 (read Sarhad Jammos article Kanisat al-Mashriq bayna shatrayha, part III, al-Muntada magazine, February 2000, vol. 5, No. 3). This is a pure fabrication of church records and the Family Tree of the Aboona Patriarchal Family. The Sulaqa Line started in Diyar Bakir in 1551 and five patriarchs later it ended and discontinued in Urmia. Meanwhile, the Mar Shimun was a title used by very early patriarchs and the Quchanis Shimun Line started from the death of Patriarch Mar Elia VIII in 1660 in Alqosh when he appointed two natir Kursi, one EshouYaaw Bar Dinkha who took the title Mar Shimun XIII and resided in Quchanis in 1692. Therefore, the Mar Shimun Line of Quchanis was a direct descent from the Aboona Line of Alqosh. Matter of fact the Mar Shimun XIII of Quchanis was a first cousin of the Line of Alqosh which continued under Marougeh Bar Auraham who took the title Elia IX in 1660. Two patriarches later brought Youkhana Hurmiz to the Patriarchate at Alqosh, who united with Rome in 1830 and the Line became pure Catholic and the church became known as the Chaldean Catholic Church. Mar Eshai Shimun, who was assassinated in 1975 was the last Patriarch from the Aboona Family.

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
