Last Pages from Gospels: KHABOURIS vs. Damhallte
Thirdwoe Wrote:Shamasha Paul, was the Diatessaron used by the Church of the East (Assyrians), east of the Euphrates, or just among the Aramaic speaking Christians of the Syrian Orthodox Churches?

It had popularity east of the Euphrates as well. We just didn't have a maniac like Rabbula running around burning manuscripts. We actually translated it into Arabic in the 11th century, so it was still around for centuries east of the Euphrates after it had disappeared west of the Euphrates.

Was it used in any official capacity like church readings? Probably not. But if it were a harmony of the Peshitta, the readings would've been the same anyway, so no harm done.
