We offer this person Bardesanes, Bar-Daisan (154? 222 m) for its importance. Was a citizen of the Edessa converted to the Christian faith in 179 CE, but he fell back in the Gnostic, thinking of the body of Christ is illusion, and that there is no resurrection of the bodies. Many became his disciples, His son Harmonius helped him in introducing his beliefs through many interesting praises, even as he considered the father of Syriac praises.
