Name  Thomas Harqel

Thomas of Harqel was an early 7th century Monophysite bishop. He was bishop of Mabbug in Syria. He, along with Paul of Tella, lived in a Coptic monastery near Alexandria, Egypt as exiles. At the request of Athanasios I, they worked on a Syriac language translation of the Greek Bible. Translation of the New Testament, known as the Harclensis was completed in 616. At this time, 2 Peter, 2 John, 3 John, Jude and Revelation were added to the Syriac Bible. Until then they were excluded.
