Summary "In St. Thomas and India, renowned scholars trace the historical, religious, and cultural connections link India's Syrian Christian community with St. Thomas the Apostle. They use modern historiographical methods that seek to corroborate the ancient tradition that tells of St. Thomas's missionary journey to India in the middle of the first century, in which he established seven churches in some of the major commercial centers of Malabar. From this first churches, Christianity spread throughout the region. It also examines the legacy of ancient Christianity on the St. Thomas Christian community in India today, as well as explores the various cultural and religious connections between the Syrian church in Indian and other ancient churches in the east."-- Publisher
