      Dear Brothers / Sisters
      This is a paragraph found in one of the church history pages in the
      net.

      "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.
