Ishaq Al-Nenawi was a Nestorian Bishop and poet. He wrote many works in the Syriac language, three of which were translated into Arabic, including Majmo’at Miamer Fi Al-Sir Al-Nuskeya (The Collection of Miamer in Asceticism), Al-Tib Al-Ruhani (Spiritual Medicine) and Rasa’el Miamer (Miamer’s Letters).
After leaving the episcopate, he chose to adopt an ascetic lifestyle and became a monk. He died in the Ruban Shabour Monastery in Iraq.
