The Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch or Syriac Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch is one of the Oriental Orthodox churches. It separated from the Eastern Orthodox Church after the Council of Chalcedon (AD 451). It is sometimes referred to as Jacobite (though this term is at times taken as derogatory) on account of the source of much of its episcopacy, Jacob Baradeus.
The present location of the Holy See of the Church is situated in Bab Touma, in the city of Damascus, Syria.
The current leader is His Holiness Moran Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas, Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, Supreme Head of the Universal Syriac Orthodox Church.
