Dear Brothers / Sisters
This is a paragraph found in one of the church history pages in the
"There were other developments in the Persian Church of potential
import to the Indian Church. A renaissance of the pre-Chalcedon faith
began, led by Jacob Bardeus, emphasizing the West Syrian
Christological tradition of the One United Nature, influencing the
church in Persia as well. Availing the relatively equable political
climate following the Arab conquest of Syria and other parts of West
Asia, a Maphrianate of the anti-Chalcedonians was established by Mar
Marutha, a native Persian, became the first Jacobite Maphriana
(Catholicos) of the East. The jurisdiction of this Catholicos at
Tigris extended to 18 Episcopal dioceses in lower Mesopotamia and
further east, but significantly, not to India."
Is any one of you can shed more light on this subjects with some
sound historical background references.
In our Lord's Love
