Thomas of Marga

NINTH century. Nestorian* historian. In 832 he entered the Nestorian monastery of Beth-'Abhe, east of Mosul in Syria. After serving as chaplain and secretary to the Patriarch Abraham from 837 to 850, he was consecrated bishop of Marga. He is best known as the writer of the Liber Superiorum (Book of Governors) which is a history of his monastery and an important source for the early history of the Nestorian Church. The Syriac text of this with an English translation was published in London by E.A.W. Budge in 1893.
