In his work, Barḥadbešabbā offers a particular vision of church history, in which he ascribes special importance to such ecclesiastical leaders of the past as Athanasios of Alexandria (ch. 9), Gregory Thaumatourgos (ch. 12), Basil of Caesarea (ch. 15), Flavianos of Antioch (ch. 16), Diodoros of Tarsus (ch. 17), John Chrysostom (ch. 18), Theodoros of Mopsuestia (ch. 19) and Nestorios (ch. 20), dedicating to each of them an individual chapter, with details of their lives as well as of their writings. The author of the History presents them as defenders of the orthodox faith, while referring to them regularly as 'blessed' (ṭubānā) and 'holy' (qadišā) men. While that in itself is not enough to be regarded as a clear sign of the cult of these figures among East-Syrian Christians during the last decades of the 6th century, this evidence definitely bears witness to the high regard in which they were held in the circles related to the School of Nisibis during that period, which in its turn gave rise to the development of the cult of at least some of them later on.
