Earliest known date attached to four Gospels
shlom lokh akh Paul myaqro,

Paul Younan Wrote:In Baghdad there is an area called "Darta de'Romaye" in Aramaic ("Dar al-Rum" in Arabic), it is named that way because there is an ancient Greek palace there (from the days of Alexander). Sixteen of our Patriarchs were buried in there, from Mar Yokhanan III (893-899) up until Mar Eliyah II (1111-1132).

See this URL:

You can see here in the book the mention of the Church of Mar Sabrisho in the Suq-al-Talat quarter of Baghdad. This was a Patriarchal residence. This is the church my priest told me this manuscript was housed in by the Rassam family.

tawdi 'al tash'eetho dashmeh dathar dorto drumoye!

But I still say that if this Gospel manuscript had differed from the Peshitta, then your Patriarch would have said so.
I still see this as a big deal, and an affirmation of the Peshitta Aramaic text. Hopefully one day will either find this Gospel and/or the Patriarch's description of the text.

P.S. On a side note, the Syriac Maronite Church has officially start using the Eastern Anaphora again which we call "Sharar" and which you call "Adday and Mari"; it has been made mandatory for five of the important Sundays in our Church calendar. (This is the Arabic and Syriac Text, in the future we will provide the Syriac only text -- which is a bit longer)
