Disputation was the proper field of Bishop Sāwīrus. While he jokingly contended Muslims and Jews alike, in his History of the Councils he spoke in a serious tone, presenting an apology of the Nicene-Constantinopolitan creed as exposed by the Council theologians against the past heresies, which he saw coming alive among his Christian contemporaries. Sāwīrus´ idiom abounds in expressions that are typical for the language of Qur’ān and the Sunna and has interesting counterparts in contemporary Islamic akidas.
