Abstract :
At the second Symposium Syriacum in 1976, the late Professor Albert Van Roey († January 19th, 2000) gave a paper on the christological controversy on Proba and John Barbur. He called it: ‘Une controverse christologique sous le patriarcat de Pierre de Callinique'. There he listed the legacy of Proba und John in the concise way for which he was known. Van Roey had been teaching in Leuven since 1949, as successor of Prof. Joseph Lebon. Among his doctoral students was also the late Prof. André de Halleux († January 31st, 1994). Van Roey already contributed to the second of the three volumes of Das Konzil von Chalkedon edited by A. Grillmeier and H. Bacht, published in 1954, with his still valuable article ‘Les débuts de l'Église jacobite' (339-360) on the development of the West-Syrian Church.
