Also known as ’Idtā d-Madnikhā d-Mirya (Mirian Syriac for "The Mirian Church of the East"), Mirianism is a mystical Abrahamic tradition with roots deep within ancient Judean Christianity. It is based on the authentic teachings of Yeshwa (Jesus the Nazarene) found in the New Testament gospels, the teachings of Saint Paul, Saint James, Saint Peter and Saint John in their epistles, the teachings and prophecies of several Old Testament texts and Apochrypha, and the modern insights of the Reverend Prophet Sun Myung Moon, founder of the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity.
The whole name of the Mirian Church of the East is The Holy Apostolic Universal Mirian Church of the East (Mirian Syriac: ’Idtā Kudištā u-Shliiḥāwtā u-Kulānāi d-Madniiḥā d-Mirya).

The word "Mirian" comes from the Syriac word "Mirya", which means 'those who challenge'. A Mirian challenges many conservative movements in mainstream Christian belief, the absolute inerrancy of the scriptures claimed by most Christians, and the creeds that divide people within the church. However, Mirianism holds a (distinct) form of the doctrine of the Trinity, Yeshwa's identity as Mishyah (Messiah), and the Resurrection. Belief in the Resurrection, as in the bodily renewal of Jesus at the first Easter, is also a challenge for the modern Church and for those outside the Church, at the personal and corporate level, to prepare for the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.

Another reason why the Mirian Church was birthed was to REclaim the Succession of Rabban (Mar) Babowai who was brought down at the hands of the Persian kings. The Church of the East accepted Nestorian Christology which threatened to break the unity of the Christian Church in AD 484.
