  Rabban Bar Sauma - LoveToKnow 1911   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
Warnings of the danger of the routes to southern Syria turned him from his purpose; and his friend and fellow-pilgrim, Rabban Marcos, becoming Nestorian patriarch (as Mar Yaballaha III.) in 1281, suggested Bar Sauma's name to Arghun Khan, sovereign of the Ilkhanate or Mongol-Persian realm, for a European embassy, then contemplated.
On this embassy Bar Sauma started in 1287, with Arghun's letters to the Byzantine emperor, the pope and the kings of France and England.
The papacy being then vacant, a definite reply to his proposals was postponed, and Bar Sauma passed on to Paris, where he had audience of the king of France (Philip the Fair).

  Bar Sauma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bar Sauma refers to two Assyrians assosicated with the Church of the East.
The first Bar Sauma was a teacher at the School of Edessa in the 5th century, but had to flee to Persia because of his Nestorian views.
The second Bar Sauma, often known as Rabban Bar Sauma, lived in the thirteenth century..

 Bar Hebræus
The main claim of Bar Hebræus to our gratitude is not, however, in his original productions, but rather in his having preserved and systematized the work of his predecessors, either by way of condensation of by way of direct reproduction.
Both on account of his virtues and of his science, Bar Hebræus was respected by all, and his death was mourned not only by men of his own faith, but also by the Nestorians and the Armenians.
He probably, however, thought that the differences between Catholics, Nestorians, and the rest were of a theological, but not of dogmatical nature, and that they did not affect the common faith; hence, he did not consider others as heretics, and was not himself considered as such, at least by the Nestorians and the Armenians.

 Bar Sauma's Nestorian Pilgrimage (Thirteenth Century)
Brief Biography: Bar Sauma, born in Tai-tu (Northern China) about 1260, was a descendant of the Onggud Turks who joined the Mongols early in the reign of Chinggis Khan.
By the age of twenty-five, Sauma had taken vows to become a Nestorian monk and built a cell to meditate in isolation.
Fired by a zeal to visit Nestorian monuments in the Middle East and Jerusalem, Sauma and his student Markos, later to become the patriarch and leader of the Nestorian church centered in Baghdad, set out on their arduous pilgrimage sometime before 1278.

Bar Sauma was born around 1220, but accounts differ about his place of birth, noting it as either Chung-tu, modern-day Beijing, or Khanbaligh, which lay to the northeast.
As Markos and Bar Sauma were preparing for a return trip to China as emissaries of the Nestorian Church, the Catholicus died, and the Nestorian bishops elected Markos as his successor.
Bar Sauma's diplomatic, political, or religious maneuvers, however, are not as important to history as his writings.

 TARZI: Edessa in the Era of Patriarch Michael The Syrian   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
Following the death of Athanasius Bar Shumana, the Syriac Metropolitan of Edessa, in 1099-1100, Patriarch Athanasius, distinguished for his learning and much respected both within and outside his own church, hoped to leave the see vacant and reside at Edessa himself.
On the death of Patriarch Athanasius in 1143 or 1144, Basil Abu‘1-Farag bar Shumana, brother of Michael bar Shumana, who had previously been Bishop of Kaishum, was transferred to the diocese of Edessa.
The incident of locust infestation in the countryside of Edessa and the use by the Edessans of the relics of St. Bar Sauma to dispel the swarms and their ensuing dispute with the Melkites portray rather clearly this background of sectarian strife.

Bar Sauma was sent to the West as an emissary of the Ilkhanid ruler Arghun in 1287, with the goal of concluding an alliance against the Mamluks.
Bar Sauma's writings were preserved in an abridged translation into Syriac, from which there are several translations into modern languages.
As Rossabi notes, "His narrative remains the only one of its era to provide an East Asian perspective on European ways and rites," even though it is somewhat disappointing in detail about life in the places through which he traveled.

Being a member of a religious order which at that time was chiefly concerned with the conversion of unbelievers, and was commissioned by the Holy See to preach Christianity especially to the Asiatic hordes then threatening the West, he devoted himself to the Eastern missions, first that of Persia.
In 1286 Argun, the khan or ruler of this kingdom, sent a request to the pope through the Nestorian bishop, Bar Sauma, to send Catholic missionaries to the Court of the great Chinese emperor, Kúblaí Khan (1260-94), who was well disposed towards Christianity.
About that time John of Montecorvino came to Rome with similar promising news, and Nicholas IV entrusted him with the important mission to Farther China, where about this time Marco Polo, the celebrated traveller, still lingered.
