Celebrating Historical Narratives: Launch of “Mar Thoma (St. Thomas) Christians of India” by Father Sylvester Kanjirammukalil OIC


In a renewed contribution to the historical and ecclesiastical scholarship, the Bethany Ashram has witnessed the launch of the much-anticipated book titled “Mar Thoma (St. Thomas) Christians of India,” authored by the esteemed Father Sylvester Kanjirammukalil OIC, in Malayalam. This event marks the fifteenth literary offering by Father Sylvester, who has dedicated his life to the study and teaching of church history with a focus on the Syro Malankara Catholic Church and the broader Christian community in India.

The publication ceremony, held at the Bethany Nagar Dayara in Thiruvananthapuram, was presided over by the Reverend Dr. Geevarghese Kuttiyil OIC, Superior of the Bethany Sannyasa Samudayam (Bethany Monastic Community), highlighting the book’s significance in shedding light on the historical paths of the Malankara Church. The first copy of this landmark publication was received by Father Thomas Sajeev OIC, the Superior of the Bethany Nagar Dayara.

Father Sylvester’s work emerges as an inspiration in the contemporary era, where the intricacies of history are often overshadowed or simplified. His scholarly pursuits extend beyond the confines of academic institutions, contributing profoundly to the seminars and educational programmes conducted at various seminaries across Kerala and the Bethany Vidyapeeth in Pune.

“Mar Thoma Christians of India” stands out for its accessible narrative style, making complex historical narratives approachable to a wider audience. Father Sylvester’s teaching methodologies and literary contributions have earned him a place of respect among theological scholars and students alike, with his works being a staple in seminary libraries.

The Thiruvananthapuram-based Bethany Nagar Dayara, where Father Sylvester continues his writing and research, serves as a hub for theological reflection and historical scholarship within the Syro Malankara Catholic Church. This latest publication not only adds to his esteemed body of work but also offers the faithful and scholars alike a window into the rich heritage of the Christian tradition in India, tracing its origins back to the apostolic era of St. Thomas.

As “Mar Thoma Christians of India” finds its place in academic and ecclesiastical circles, it underscores the importance of preserving church history and fostering a deeper understanding of our collective Christian heritage. This book launch, a celebration of Father Sylvester’s academic achievement, is a testament to the enduring spirit of inquiry that guides the Syro Malankara Catholic Church’s journey through history.
