Fw: "Malphono D`Mardutho" & " Beth Mardutho"
- A SMALL MISTAKE CREPT IN MY MESSAGE OF SATURDAY 25TH MAY 2013. KINDLY READ IT AS UNDER AND INCLUDE IN THE JOURNAL IF THE MESSAGE OF 25TH HAS NOT ALREADY BEEN INCLUDED IN THE JOURNAL
Dr George Kiraz, born in the Holy Land now residing in the USA has established and is running the Beth Mardutho an institution dedicated to the cause of Syriac. Beth Mardutho is the same as Baitho D`Mardutho My dear and Very Rev Kuriakose Moolayil Corepiscopa alias Moolelachan is decorated by HH Moran Patriarch with the title Malfono D`Mardutho. The word Mardutho is common in the name of the institution and the Patriarchal Title. I was at a loss to comprehend the meaning of the word Mardutho in Beth Mardutho. With with the confirment of the title Malfono D`Mardutho [Doctor of (Syriac) Literature] on Moolelachan, I think Beth Mardutho would mean House of (Syriac) Literature or rather School of (Syriac) Literature. It is hoped that I will get a confirmation on the matter in these columns
