Wikipedia WWW site, June 8, 2009 (Syriac Orthodox Church; Syriac Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East; autocephalous Oriental Orthodox church based in the Middle East, with members spread throughout the world; parted ways with Eastern Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism over the Council of Chalcedon in 451. The church is often referred to as Jacobite (after Jacob Baradaeus) or Monophysite, but it rejects these names. In 2000, a Holy Synod ruled that the name of the church in English should be the "Syriac Orthodox Church." Before this it was, and often still is, known as the "Syrian Orthodox Church." The name was changed to disassociate the church from the polity of Syria. The official name of the church in Syriac is ʻIdto Suryoyto Triṣut̲ Šub̲ḥo [in rom.]; this name has not changed, nor has it changed in any language other than English)
