      Dear Achen,

      Thank you for this. The Catholicos of the East
      AD 686-693 is Mar Khnanisho. Must be same as
      "Hananeshu". The Maphriyan during this period
      is Mar Abraham (?). Maphriyanate started in
      AD 620 (sort of in the continuity of the
      Catholicate, but a reduced version). In 1860,
      the Maphriyanate was abolished in a Synod,
      but the Catholicate continued.

      Thomas,
      St. Mary Church/St. George Church, Thumpamon
