http://syriaca.org/person/1196 This page is an entry in Qadishe: A Guide to the Syriac Saints
In hagiography: Damian was patriarch of Alexandria. He sent a letter to Jacob Baradaeus hoping for communion between the churches. He visited Antioch but broke from the Patriarch of Antioch, Peter of Callinicus, because of the Tritheist controversy. This schism ended with the patriarchate of Athanasius I Gamolo.
