Babmeus

was a leading member of the Nestorian Church planted by Barsumas in Persia, who, though originally a layman, and as such married, succeeded Acacius as archbishop or patriarch of Seleucia, after a two years vacancy of the see, in the year 496. Babaeus thus became the head of the Persian Church, in which capacity he summoned a synod by-which the Nestorian body was completely organized. Among the canons passed by this synod was one granting permission to bishops or presbyters to marry once. See Assemani,. Bibl. Orient. III, ii, 79, 381,' 429; Neander,- Church History (English translation), 4:285.
