At a time when the great schism between Orthodox and Roman (Catholic) Christianity was of rather new date, the famous Syrian orthodox scholar and cleric Bar Hebraeus (Gregory Bar Hebraeus, Abu al-Faraj, Yohannan [John] Ibn al-'Ibri, Bar 'Ebhraya, 1226-1286) wrote:I became convinced, that these quarrels of Christians among themselves are not a matter of facts but of words and denominations. ... And I wholly eradicated the root of hatred from the depth of my heart and I absolutely forsook disputation with anyone concerning confession. (Bar Hebraeus' Book of the Dove, tr. A. J. Wensinck, E. J. Brill, Leyden, 1919, p. 60)Quoted from article http://syrcom.cua.edu/Hugoye/Vol2No2/HV2N2GLane.htmlAn Account of Gregory Bar Hebraeus Abu al-Faraj and His Relations with the Mongols of PersiaGunnar
