Hi.
I'm looking for images of East Catholics Patriarchs to upload in Wiki.

I've found some item in Google Books, but the description is in Arabic that I cant read at all.
I've put the images here my_link [acioc-milano.org]

IMAGE 1: perhaps Melkite Patriarch Peter IV Geraigiry ???
IMAGE 2: perhaps Melkite Patriarch Gregory II Youssef ???
IMAGE 3: no idea
IMAGE 4: perhaps Syrian Patriarch Michael III Jarweh
IMAGE 5: no idea
IMAGE 6: perhaps Melkite Patriarch Gregory II Youssef ???
IMAGE 7: no idea
IMAGE 8: perhaps Maronite bishop Germanos Farhat ???

I kindly ask someone who can read Arabic if please he can give me some hints.

My guess is the first photo is of a Assyrian/Chaldean bishop and the second a Catholic Armenian.

I think there are a few Syrians as well.

cool

Yes the Patriarch in IMAGE 1 is probably Audishu V Khayyath, Chaldean patriarch 1894-1899. The are other photos in Wiki not different

For the IMAGE 4 the text could look like this merge of "cut-and-copies" from Wiki-Arabic:
السعيد الذ كر اغناطيوس ميخائيل جروة
أول بطاركة السريان الكاثوليك (١٧٨٣-١٨٠٠
i.e. (Google translate)
"Happy delicious cr Ignatius Mikhail Djaroueh
Syriac Catholic Patriarchs of the first (1783-1800)"
It is the easier, because of the dates, and the figure is surely a patriach (because of Pallium) and Syriach vestments. I think I'll upload in Wiki

Numbered according to images on your link. I've tried to anglicise the names, where possible.

1. His Beatitude Joseph Emmanuel II, Patriarch of Babel in Chaldea.
2. His Beatitude Paul Peter (Paulus Petrus) XI Ammanuwilian of Cilecia. [Armenian]
3. The heads of the department of medicine and its professors in the school year 1906 - 1907.
4. Ignatius Michael Garuh, first Patriarch of the Syrian Catholics.
5. Bishop Philippianos Kafury of Homs and Hamaa.
6. His Beatitude Peter Garighiry of the [Melkite] Greek Catholics.
7. [Maronite] Bishop of Beirut Abdullah Qiraaly (1672 - 1742).
8. [Maronite] Bishop Germanus Farahat of Aleppo (1670 - 1732).

THANK A LOT !!

I've already uploaded in Wiki the images of Patriarchs Peter IV Geraigiry [en.wikipedia.org] and Ignace Michael III Jarweh [en.wikipedia.org]
(I wrote both articles time ago, but only now I've found sources for images). The Article about Germanos Farhat is on my list-to-do.

Now I dare to ask you an other confirmation from this link link9 [acioc-milano.org].

I guess that Image 9 is H.B. Patriarch Gregory II Youssef, the greatest Melkite Patriarch. The dates 1823-1897 (I can read) are actually his birth-death dates, and in the strange Arabic writing I can find something like غريغوريوس يوسف
which is his name from Wiki-Arabic. But I hope in the confirmation of some one who can read Arabic. The image comes from http://books.google.com/books?id=JL...es&cad=3#v=onepage&q&f=false

Again Thanks

Yes, it is the Melkite Patriarch Gregorios Youssef. The writing just goes on to give his full title as it was written at the time. (Patriarch of Antioch, Alexandria, and Jerusalem for the Greek Catholics.)

Thank a lot again

It was a long time I looked for an image of Patriarch Youssef. Now I've uploaded it in Wiki (Gregory II Youssef [en.wikipedia.org]).

I have a Muslim friend who I forwarded the link to (who forwarded it around for assistance - and one of the assistant's uncle is Bishop of Jerusalem (unknown jurisdiction)...

Anyway - here's his translation - got a little bit more meat for you:

IMAGE 1:
His Beatitude, The Honorable Yusof (Joseph) Emanuel , The Second
Total Beatitude Chaldean Patriarch of Babylon

IMAGE 2:
His Beatitude, The Honorable, Bolos Botros XI
Total Beatitude Patriarch of Qalqilya (Palestine)

IMAGE 3
Mayor of the Medical Office and Its Teachers
{Translator’s Note: Names starting from those Standing on the Right to Left, followed by those sitting Right to Left}
Father Neron (Nero), Father Buffet , Dr. Shapotan, Dr. Kilmet, Dr. Kik, Father Colinget
Dr. Hash, Dr. De Brown, Father Katan, Dr. Nicher, Father Solran, Father Bolmoa.

IMAGE 4
The Honorable, The Respectable, Ignatius Mikhail Jerwah
The First Syriac Catholic Patriarch (1783 – 1800)

IMAGE 5
The Honorable The Respectable, Philipianos Kafouri The Bishop of Homs and Hama (Syria)





IMAGE 6
(The Honorable Scholar Mr. Botros Al Jerejiri)
(The New Roman Catholic Patriarch)
We received by telegraph from Syria that the Honorable Bishop Botros Al Jerejiri had been elected Patriarch for the Roman Catholic Community ruling over Antioch, Alexandria, Jerusalem and All the East. This was very well received by the mentioned community based on his Beatitude’s reputation.
Page 63 of the 13th section of the Crescent, Sixth Year (Translator’s Note: Probably a page from a magazine or Newspaper)

IMAGE 7
Mr. Abdullah Qarali, Bishop of Beirut (1672 – 1742)
Taken from an old image that was photographed by Writer Yusof Efendi Khatar Ghanem and he showed it in the Program of the Brotherhood of Saint Maron.

The name in no. 5 is فلابيانوس Flābiyānūs, i.e. not Philip(p)ianos, but Flavianus (Italian Flaviano; French Flavien). I think it must be Greek Melkite Metropolitan Flaviano Khoury (Kfoury) [catholic-hierarchy.org] of Homs and Hama.

Mistake in image 2. It's supposed to be Patriarch of Cilicia.
