      How the Syriac Physicians influenced Pope John XXI

      by Father Dale A. Johnson

      Hunein Ibn Ishak is known for his contribution to medical science. What
      is less known is that he was a Christian serving in an Islamic court in
      Baghdad whose translations would influence a future Roman Pope four
      hundred years after Hunein's death. Hunein Ibn Ishak was an
      optholologist who looked into the eye of Greek wisdom and brought
      forth many treatises of Syriac and Arabic. Hunein translated
      Aristotle, Plato, Hippolitus, and most importantly the medical
      literature of Galen. Later medieval sources knew him by the Latinized
      name, Joannitius. It was probably under this name that the future Pope
      John XXI knew this Syriac scholar.
