Bidāry, Pawlos (1887/1890–1974) [Chald.]
He was born in Bidār near Zakho, and joined the Seminary of St. John in Mosul in 1900. He was ordained a priest in 1912. He lived in Syria most of his life, but returned to Iraq a few years before 1974.
He wrote a grammar entitled Mhadyānā d-eskulāye ‘Guide for students’ (Mosul, 1923). He composed many poems, only a few of which were published (India, 1957). A few of his articles, written in Syriac, were published by the Iraqi Academy under the title Selected articles & poems by Rev. Paulus Bidary (Baghdad, 1977).
