|In 489 AD there was a schism between the east Syrian followers of Nestorius in Persia and the west Syrian followers of Jacob of Edessa. Over the years, the scripts used by the two groups started to diverge from each other. The Nestorian's script was known as Nestorian while the Jacobite's script was known as Serto (linear) or Jacobite. A version of the Nestorian script is still used for religious writings by Christians in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq.
