SABHA CHARITHRAM PART 47
Witnessing various falsehoods written in both the forums by misguided
people I felt it logical enough to reproduce the true version of the
Church History written by none other than the most Rev Malankara
Malpan Dr Kanyamparambil Achen.
I humbly implore this forum to kindly reproduce the article as it is,
so that the faithful could have a clear view about the happenings in
this church for the past 100 years. This article starts from page 173
of the book. However only select but important portions (relevant in
this context) have been written along with my very small observations
in the spare time I could afford because of my busy schedule.
I do not know if this book is available anymore but I sincerely
exhort every faithful to try to get at least a copy of it.
Aloho Ahmuch .
THE SYRIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH IN INDIA AND ITS APOSTOLIC FAITH
Mor Augen Catholicos had all his ecclesiastical dignities- Remban,
Bishop Catholicos from three successive Patriarchs of Antioch. It
is really sad that he had to separate himself from the Holy Throne
He had been in his time the unequalled Syriac Scholar in the Syrian
Church, and was also well versed in Sanskrit and Malayalam Languages.
Many are his translations of liturgical Syriac books into Malayalam.
His poetical composition in Syriac and Malayalam are certainly
laudable. His erudition in Theology, Doctrine, Canons and Church
History had been vast that had Vattasseril Dionysius and Mor Augen
Catholicos utilized their many sided capabilities for the spiritual
and ecclesiastical progress of the Malankara Church, instead of
vainly attacking the Holy See, no Church in Kerala could have equaled
the Syrian Church. Unfortunately their actions split the Church twice
in a span of 60 years! Had Mor Augen Catholicos been given a free
hand, by his partisans, to continue his due subordination to the
Patriarch, as he had been preserving from 1964-1968, the history of
this Church might have been quite different!
