Peter of Kallinikos
Peter of Kallinikos was a West Syriac writer who died in 591 AD. He was Syrian Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch between 581-591.
It seems that he may have written in both Greek and Syriac. One work definitely written in Syriac is a verse memra on the Crucifixion, of which an English translation exists. Seven letters survive in part, and at least one of these was also composed in Syriac (an English translation exists of this).
His other letters and three theological treatises, which today survive only in Syriac translation, were all originally written in Greek. These are:
- A treatise against Proba and john Barbur
- An extensive work in three books against Damian, Patriarch of Alexandria [ET]. Note that book 1 and book 2, chapters 1-5 are lost.
- A treatise against the tritheists.[ET]
