In Pognon 96 (= A.5 in my 'A corpus of inscriptions from Tur 'Abdin amd environs', Oriens Christianus 71, 1987, 53-139, at p. 64, the last three letters are left off the Syriac term for rector. My opinion is that the rector was the senior member of a college of three or four priests at the village of Heshterek in Tur 'Abdin during the tenth to the twelfth centuries. I have not pursued the question any further, but should like to know what you come up with.Best wishes,Andrew.Dr A. N. Palmer

Hi. Can anyone point me to literature that discusses the Syriac term ܪܝܫܥܝܕܬܐ "head of a church"? I'm unsure how this position fits into the standard ecclesiastical hierarchy.Thanks,
