The War of the Trinity (Also the Cleansing of Heresy among Byzantines or the War of Liberation among the Allies) was a conflict among several nations over control of the Levant. Directly after the war came the handing over of all of Bahrayn (now repopulated with pagan tribes), except the Awal to Medina as long as the tribes were allowed to remain there, the independence of the Levantine Confederation, the marking of Axum's golden age in the founding of the Axumite Confederation after the annexation of Nubia's tribes, and the further wars against the Byzantines, still holding the Miaphysite Patriarch of Alexandria.
The term War of the Trinity is a colloquial term often used by the historical community as well (other members of the historical community use First Levantine War and the War of Liberations, while the contemporaries of the war used War of Liberation and Cleansing of Heresy respectively due to their respective goals). The name War of the Trinity comes due to the main theological tension between the members of the war: the status of the Holy Trinity in Christianity and the relationship between the god Yahweh, his "son" Jesus and the alleged Holy Ghost. While a high proportion of the fighting in both sides was handled by pagans and Jews, the nations were in majority Christian.
The Religious Crisis of the VIII Century, caused by the Great Schism between the Latin and Greek Churches led to huge unrest in the Byzantine Empire, especially in Coptic Miaphysite territories (the patriarchs of Jerusalem and Alexandria) as well as making the Jews decide to go back to Jerusalem and aid the nation to gain independence. This led to huge attempts for independence, whilst the Medinans, trying to weaken the other powers and aid their more theologically-similar brethren in the Levant, sent aid, and convinced the king of Aram to do the same.
The Incident of Nazareth, an incident caused by a Medinan preacher attempting to convince Phoenicians, Nabateans and Hebrews to join a local rebellion, was the final catalyst of the war. Shortly afterwards, Byzantium declared war on both Medina and Aram, in 703.
The war started with mostly Medinan offensives, with the Phoenician rebels coordinating with Aram and Medina being able to swiftly take over Phoenicia in 705, ending the skirmishes in Nabatea and placing Judea in danger. Although Byzantine troops attempted to make a counter attack by taking over Tyre; however, the local Phoenicians refused to surrender, beginning the extremely long Siege of Tyre by destroying the very old bridge of Tyre. Since they had greatly stacked up on resources and had a large enough fleet supplying them regularly. The Byzantines continue blocking the Tyrian fleet, even though the Aramaic navy had attempted to block the siege using Chaldean fire, and had been defeated three times.
The first years of the war, according to about a third of the historian community of nowadays, also brought in the first anthems of the world, with the Pagans of Greece in the war adopting the Delphic Hymn to Apollo as their anthem, something that would later become the anthem of the entire Greek Pagan community.
Although the Copts of Alexandria (nowadays, the territory belonging to Kīmīt) remained under Byzantine hegemony, the Levantine Miaphysites and Jews declared independence from Byzantium in the five-nation Levantine Confederation, the first nation to grant equal rights to (Jewish) Hebrews, (Miaphysie) Phoenicians, and Syriacs, (Nestorian) Nabateans, (Medinan) Arabs and (Monophysite) Copts (in this term meaning those from Kimit, or the Kimitans)
