Yawsep Busnaya (d. 979) [Ch. of E.]

Monk and spiritual teacher. Born in Beth ʿEdraye, near Mosul, he became a monk of the Monastery of Rabban Hormizd, but subsequently moved to the monastery of Abraham, of Beth Ṣayyare (in the ʿAmadiyya region, N. Iraq). His Life was written by his disciple Yoḥannan bar Kaldun; this not only incorporates much of his spiritual teaching (in chapter 8), but it also gives a detailed picture of monastic life of the time.
