ST. THOMAS THE APOSTLE AND THE SYRIAN CHURCH IN INDIA

From Asian Review By Demetrius Charles Boulger, Oriental Institute (Woking, Surrey), East India Association (London, England), Royal India, Pakistan, and Ceylon Society

[Sir Walter Elliot was well acquainted, of course, with the tradition regarding the murder of St. Thomas by Gondophares, one of the later rulers of Bactria. He put together this note to show the grounds on which rested the Madras tradition that St. Thomas was murdered at that place by a native chief, or by a Brahman.—R. S.]

I.—The testimonies for the mission of the apostle St. Thomas into Southern India are the following :—

1. Socrates (Eccles. Hist., Lib. I. c. 29) says that, in the allotment of regions, for the exercise of their labours, among the apostles, St. Thomas took Parthia, St. Matthew Ethiopia, and St. Bartholomew the regions of India adjacent thereto. At this time Parthia, under the dominion of the Arsacidae, was the most powerful kingdom of Asia, as it had swallowed up those portions of the Syrian territories of the Seleucidae not subjugated by Rome, and thus acquired their Indian dominions.

2. Eusebius (Hist. Eccles., L. III. c. i) says that such was the tradition of the first five centuries. He farther states (L. V. c. 10) that St. Pantene, in his mission to India, found the Gospel of St. Matthew in Hebrew in the possession of the inhabitants who had received it from St. Bartholomew. The journey of Pantene is supposed to have been made in the year 317 (see Pagi in this year of the Eccles., Annals of Baronius}.

3. So general was this belief that Cave in his Scriptorum Ecclesias. Hist. lith. (Oxon. 1740-3) supposes that Manes, the Heresiarch, endeavoured to turn the circumstance to his own credit by sending thither a disciple of the same name in the hope that he might be confounded with the apostle (Cave, Saec. tert. in Mane).

4. It was to counteract these attempts that St. Pantene undertook his voyage, as already stated on the authority of Eusebius, and that St. Athanasius appointed Numentius Bishop of India (Sosomene, Eccl. Hist., L. II. c. 24; Socrates, I. 29).

5. St. Jerome, too (Ep. 7) bears testimony to the number of Christians from India who visited him at Jerusalem. We learn from Procopius that the silkworm was introduced into Europe by certain Christian priests from India who presented the eggs of the bombyx to Justinian (Hist. Misc., c. 17); and Cosmas of Alexandria found Christians in great numbers in his journey to India in A.d. 530 (Indico-pleustes, Chris, op. de mundo, III. 179).

After this no mention occurs of the state of Christianity in India till the i4th century, when Haito, the Armenian, alludes to the tradition of St. Thomas in his Oriental history, and says that latterly the religion taught by him had much decayed, so that it was then professed in only one city: this Marco Polo had already stated a few years before (L. III. c. 27).

II.—The following relating to St. Thomas are translated from the " Bibliotkeca Orientalis Clementina Vaticana' of Joseph Simon Assemanus (Vol. IV., p. 435).

" i. Saint Thomas, the Apostle of the Indies.—All Greek, Latin, and Syriac ecclesiastical records bear testimony, that Thomas was the Apostle of the Indies. Antonius Gouvea (La Croze, Histoire du Christianisme des Indes, p. 39), in his ' History of Alexius Menezes, Archbishop of Goa' (L. I. c. i), relates the preaching of the Apostle, from the tradition of the Christians of Malabar, in the following words : ' In the division of the parts of the earth among the apostles, India fell to the lot of the Apostle Thomas, who first preached in Arabia Felix, and in the island of Dioscuris now called Socotra ; thence he proceeded to Cranganore, where the King of Malabar resided. Here happened to the Apostle the adventures narrated in his life by Abdias of Babylon. Having established many churches at Cranganore, he went to Coulan,* a town of * Quilon, on the Malabar coast.

that part, and brought a large number of people to the faith of Christ. He then retired to the opposite coast of Malabar at present known by the name of Coromandel and stopped at Meliapor* (which the Latins call the town of St. Thomas, and the Syrians Beth- Thuma, or Be- Thuma, the house of Thomas), where he instructed the king and the people in the Christian mysteries. Proceeding thence to China, he preached the gospel in the city of Camballu and erected churches. But where this city Camballu is, we know not; nor is there extant in China any vestige of it, although by many arguments we might be induced to believe that the gospel was announced in those places. From the ancient records of the diocese of Angamale it would appear, that formerly it was customary to send to that coast a prelate, who bore the title of the Archbishop of the Indies. He had under him two suffragans, one in the island of Socotra, and the other in the region of Masin (as the place is called in the old registers). But St. Thomas having returned from China to the town of Meliapor brought on him the hatred and envy of two Brahmins, who, on account of the conversion of many people to the faith of Christ, raised a great multitude against him, and pursued the Apostle, casting stones : when one of the Brahmins saw him in a half-dying state, he pierced him with a lance and deprived the Apostle of life.' Thus far Gouvea. " 2. But what is related about China and the town of Camballu, Renaudot has overthrown in a work printed in French with the title ' Anciennes Relations des Indes et de la Chine, Paris, 1718,' in which, at page 228, he shows that St. Thomas preached in the Indies and not in China. But what Gouvea says to be unknown to him as to where ' the town of Camballu and the region of Masin ' were situated, La Croze rightly points out (History of the Christians of India, p. 40), that the first was the metropolis of China, and the second the southern part of that empire, called also by the name of Mangi. ' Camballe,' says he,

* Mailapur—a suburb of Madras adjoining the other southern suburb called " St. Thome"." St. Thomas' Mount lies west of these.—R. S.

' is the metropolis of China, which the Tartars denominate Cambalu, that is the city of the Emperor (concerning which see Marco Polo, L. II. c. 10, and Magaillan, c. i, p. 6); but Masin is the southern part of China, which by the Oriental writers is commonly called Masin or Matsin.' Thomas, laballaha, Jacob, and Denha, Bishops of the Indies, in their relation of Indian affairs, written in 1504, to their Patriarch Elias, join Sina with Masin. ' He next directed the same four Fathers to proceed to the country of the Indians, and to the isles of the sea, that are between Dabag, and Sin and Masin.' And further on : ' The Epistle which the Fathers of India, and Sin and Masin, have despatched.' The Arabs, Persians and Turks understand by these two names the whole tract of country in which northern and southern China are comprehended. ' The Eastern writers,' says Herbelot (p. 811) ' in speaking of China in general, call it Tchin and Matchin (Sina and Masina), just as they mean all Tartary when they use the expression Jagiug and Magiug, that is Gog and Magog, of which mention is made in the sacred writings. Some geographers contend that the name Tchin designated northern China, which many hold to be the same as Khathu or Khathai ; and that Southern China was called Matchin, under which they include Cochin China, Tonquin, and the kingdoms of Anam, together with Siam and Pegu.' "3. Ancient records of the Indian Christians till the arrival of the Portuguese (p. 441).—Antonius Gouvea and other Portuguese, Italian, French and Spanish writers relate, on the authority of the Malabar Christians, that the following incidents occurred in India, from the death of the Apostle St. Thomas to the year when the Portuguese arrived in that country. The Church, founded in India by St. Thomas (say they, La Croze, p. 43), flourished till then, and possessed its own Bishops, Presbyters, Clergy and faithful; but afterwards, when the infidel kings occupied Meliapor and the neighbouring towns, they raised a severe persecution against the Christians. Hence very many

persons retired to the mountains where is situated the region of Malabar, in the southern part of the peninsula this side the Ganges, towards the west, between the kingdom of Deccan on the north and the promontory of Comorin on the south : this extent the Portuguese call Serra* or the mountains, of Malabar. There they found the Christians whom St. Thomas had instructed before proceeding to Meliapor. From these mountains they spread themselves over the territories of Angamale, Cranganore, Coulan, Travancore, Cochin, Cananore, and the lands belonging at present to the king of Calicut, whom they otherwise style the Samorin or Emperor. Many privileges were granted to them by the heathen rulers of those provinces; especially by Ceram Perumal, the Emperor of all Malabar, who founded the town of Calicut in A.d. 907 according to Scaliger (L. 5 de Emend, temp. p. 525) or in 825 according to Kircher (Biblioth., Bremen, Fascicul. IV, col. 5, p. 763). They were certainly invested with the honours of nobility and left to the government of their own Bishops in civil as well as ecclesiastical affairs. A copy of these privileges was diligently preserved by the Nestorian Bishops until the arrival of the Portuguese in Malabar. It was lost, they say, through carelessness when Jacob the Bishop of Angamale delivered it to the Portuguese commissary at Cochin. Alexius Menezes, Archbishop of Goa, saw (a.d. 1599) a grant belonging to the Christians of Coulan, written in the Malayalim, Canarese, Bisnagur.t and Tamil languages. In the reign of Ceram Perumal, a certain Thomas, an Armenian, commonly called Thomas Cana (La Croze, pp. 46, 49) is reported to have arrived in Malabar. He is said to have had two wives ; one at Cranganore, and the other at Angamale. By each of these

t Vijayanagar. This may mean Telugu ; but Canarese would be more appropriately called the Vijayanagar language, though it is true that at one period the Vijayanagar kingdom comprised large portions of the Telugu country. Still in A.d. 1599 the Vijayanagar sovereignty had ceased over the Canarese country.—R. S.

women he had children : but the offspring of the former were styled the nobility, who refused to contract marriages with the descendants of the latter woman or even to admit them to the communion of the Church or to acknowledge their priests ; for they held the first to be his lawful wife, and the second only a concubine. From this Thomas, then, all the race of Malabar Christians trace their origin. About a century afterwards, that is A.d. 922,* two Bishops seem to have been despatched from Babylon to India, Sapores and Perozes, whom Gouvea everywhere calls Mar Habro and Mar Prodh. Being very kindly received by the ruler of Coulan, they erected churches and converted many to the faith of Christ. The same Gouvea writes that the above-mentioned Bishops founded in Coulan the Church of St. Thomas, 733 years before A.u. 1603, that is in A.r>. 870. The Nestorian Malabar Christians venerated them as saints. In the Synod of Diampor (Sess. 8, Dec. 25) the Archbishop of Goa directed that the Churches dedicated to their names whether in the town of Coulan or elsewhere should be consecrated by the title of All Saints, and he interdicted veneration being paid to them until it was established that they were not Nestorians. In process of time, however, the Christians of Coulan and Cochin attained to some consequence, so that they set up a ruler for themselves. Baliartes was the first to reign in Malabar with the title of King of the Christians of St. Thomas, and after him, several of his descendants governed the Kingdom, till at last it passed from the Christian to the heathen kings of Diampor, by the law of adoption. The kings of Cochin were Malabar Christians, when the Portuguese first landed at those coasts."

The following relation presents a brief and interesting account of the state of the Syrian Church in India, and of the settlement of the Portuguese in that country in the fifteenth century. The original in Syriac, is published in

* Not 822, as La Croze erroneously places it. For if A.d. 1602 answer to the year 680 of the people of Coulan according to Gouvea, it is plain that this epoch commenced in the year 922 and not in 822 (Assemanus). [It really began A.d. 825.—R. S.]

" Trusting in the assistance of God the Lord of all, we write the History of the blessed Indians, and of their arrival at the city of Gazarta Zebedoe.

" Now in the year 1801 of Alexander,* there came three faithful Christian men from the remote regions of India to Marf Simeon, the CathoHcos Patriarch of the East, that they might obtain Bishops for their provinces,—and conduct them thither. One of them, according to the will of the Creator, died on the way ; the other two came in safety to the Mar Catholicos then residing in the city of Gazarta Zebedce ;J and they were received by him with exceeding joy. One of them was called George, and the other Joseph. Both were ordained priests by the Mar Catholicos, in the holy church of St. George in Gazarta, because they were sufficiently instructed in learning. They were afterwards sent to the convent of the holy and blessed Eugenius.§

* The Syrians compute time by the Grecian Period, in which the year 1801 corresponds to A.d. 1490.

\ Gazarta Zebedce, is otherwise called Gazarta, that is the Island of Cardoa. By the Arabs it is denominated Gezira ; by Ammianus Bezabda; by Jerome Zabdicenc ; and by Masius Gazerta. It is an island and city of the river Tigris, situated about 12 miles above Mosul, is nearly 10 miles in circumference, surrounded on all sides by walls. See the Dissertation on the Monophysites, under the article Gazarta, and Assemanus, Biblioth. Orient., vol. i., p. 524.

§ In the History of the Nestorian Patriarchs, composed by Mares, in the life of Papas, Eugenius is said to have come to Nisibis from Egypt, to have resided in the mountain of Izlensi, to have prophesied concerning Arius and the Nicene Council, to have travelled over Cherda and Bizebda, and finally to have built a convent, in which he was buried. But in the Syriac Poem of Nedjesu Sobensis (vol. iii., p. 147) that convent is said to have been erected at Beth-Maare, a village subject to Nisibis (Assemanus).

Hence they brought two monks bearing the same name—for both had the designation of Raban Joseph—whom the Mar Catholicos consecrated Bishops in the church of St. George : the one he named Thomas,* and the other Joannes. He delivered to them excellent letters patent and other documents, signed and sealed with his ring, and dismissed them with prayers and benedictions, and directed them to proceed to the region of the Indies, together with the Indians. When these four had arrived there in safety, by the help of Christ our Lord, they were received with much gladness by those believers, who met them with joy, carrying in front a copy of the Gospels, a Cross, censers and tapers, and they brought them in, with great pomp and singing of Psalms and hymns. They consecrated altars and ordained many priests, because for a long time they had been in want of Bishops. Mar Joannes, the Bishop, remained in India; but Mar Thomas, his colleague, returning shortly to the Catholicos, carried for him gifts and offerings and a servant.

" It happened that before the return of the Bishop, Mar Thomas, to India, Mar Simeon, the Catholicos, died, and from this temporal and changing life he departed to that •eternal and immortal state in the year 1813 of the Greeks {a.d. 1502), and he is buried in the monastery of the holy and blessed Eugenius. May the Lord vouchsafe to grant rest to his soul in the celestial mansions of his kingdom : Amen ! Elias, the Catholicos Patriarch, succeeded him, who also took three very excellent monks from the monastery of St. Eugenius. The first of these was Raban David, surnamed the Tall, whom he ordained Metropolitan, and called Mar Jaballaha. The second was named Raban George, whom he consecrated Bishop and directed to be called Mar Denha. The last was Mar Md,sud, whom he likewise created Bishop and called Mar Jacob. He ordained

all these in the Monastery of St. John* of Egypt, own brother of Saint Achaeus, in the territory of Gazarta Zebedce, in the year of the Greeks 1814. He afterwards charged these very four Fathers to proceed to the country of the Indies and to the Islands of the sea that are within Dabag, and Sin, and Masin.t and, by the assistance of Christ, their Lord, they all reached thither in safety, and found Mar John, the Bishop of the Indies, still alive, who exceedingly rejoiced, together with the other worthy believers who dwelt there, at the arrival of the Fathers.

" The next year, they sent letters to Mar Elias the Catholicos, who, however, did not receive them, being prevented by death; and he was buried in the church of Meschinta in the city of Mosul. Mar Simeon was chosen Catholicos in his place. But the letter written from India by the above-mentioned Fathers was after this manner:—

" ' The Epistle which the Fathers of India and Sin
and Masin have despatched:

" ' To another Simeon, and to the Papas of our days, to the Timothy of our age, to the Joshua the son of Nun of our times, and to the Jesu Jabas of our era,} to whom was

* Andreas Masius mentions this convent in the preface to the Anaphora of St. Basil. But Mares relates in the life of Bar Baseminus the Patriarch, that John and Achas were the disciples of the holy Eugenius, and that they converted a temple of idols at Bezabdi into a church, where they founded a convent to which was afterwards given the denomination of Zarnucha (see vol. ii., pages 537 and 540, concerning the account of John and Achas, in the Menology of the Chaldasans, and regarding the convent situated in the island of Zebedce).

\ The Patriarch Elias is here addressed by the names of his predecessors, who were noted among that people for the fame of their sanctity or doctrine. Simeon surnamed Bar-saba was a Martyr under Sapor King of the Persians ; Papas was the predecessor of this Simeon; Timothy in the year 782 ruled over the Nestorians ; Jesus the son of Nun, or Josue Bar-Nun, succeeded

given power in heaven and earth of feeding the flock of Christ, with the rod of Peter which has been transmitted to the times succeeding him ;—O blessed people to whom this happened, namely, to possess such a Highpriest and Ruler!—to Mar Elias the Catholicos Patriarch of the East (the mother of the other portions of the world) whom may the Lord establish, comfort, raise, magnify and strengthen for the glory of the Christian religion and for the exaltation of the churches: Amen!—Thy insignificant servants and imperfect disciples, Mar Jaballaha, Mar Thomas, and Mar Jacob, and Denha the pilgrim, contemptible and weak, adore the footstool of thy spotless and holy feet, and beseech for their distress the aid of thy acceptable and efficacious prayers, and with an uplifted voice say in a supplicatory mood, Lord, bless us! Lord, bless us! Lord, bless us!—John also, the tabernacle of God and the treasure of his ministry, saint and chief of saints, Metropolitan Bishop of Atela; and all the holy Fathers, and excellent monks and sacred priests and immaculate Deacons, and chosen believers, and all the Christians dwelling there, may they receive our greeting in the Lord !

" ' We now signify for thy sincere delight, that, assisted by divine power and the aid of thy acceptable prayers, we arrived safely and in good health at the blessed lands of the Indians, through the efficacy of heavenly grace. We return thanks to God the Lord of all, who confounds not those who put their trust in him. Here then we were received by the Christians with the greatest joy : and our Father the holy Mar John is still alive, and sends to you much greeting. There are here, about thirty thousand Christian families in communion of faith with us, and they beseech the Lord that he might preserve you in safety.

Now they have commenced to erect other churches, and they abound with plenty of all things, and they are gentle and peaceful. The Lord be praised! But the Churches of St. Thomas the Apostle are beginning to be frequented by certain Christians, who are employed in their restoration. They are distant also from the above-mentioned Christians by a journey of nearly 25 days, and they dwell by the sea, in a city called Meliapor,* in the province of Silan, which is one of the provinces of India. For the regions of the Indies are many and powerful; and they occupy a journey of six months, and each kingdom has its own name. Our region also, in which the Christians dwell, is called Malabar, and it has about twenty cities, of which three are celebrated and strong—Carangol, Palor, and Colom,f and others that lie close to these. In all these, likewise, Christians dwell and churches have been constructed ; and near at hand lies the great and opulent city Calicut which the idolatrous infidels occupy.

" ' This also learn ye, our Fathers ; namely, that powerful ships have been sent to these lands of the Indies from the West by the King of the Christians, who are our brethren, the Franks.J The voyage lasted a whole year ; at first, steering towards the south, they sailed by Chus, that is Ethiopia ; whence they came to the countries of the Indies ; and having purchased pepper and other commodities, they returned to their people. The way being thus opened and well explored, the above-mentioned King (whom may the Lord preserve in safety) despatched six other large vessels, in which having crossed the sea in 6 months, they landed at the city of Calicut,§ being most

skilled in the naval art. A great many Ishmaelites* inhabit Calicut, who, roused by a natural hatred against the Christians, began to accuse them to the heathen King, saying that those men had come from the west, and that the city and the region had exceedingly pleased them; wherefore they would return very shortly to their King and bring large forces in ships, whence war and the destruction of the Kingdom would ensue.

" ' The infidel king believed the words of the Ishmaelites, and following their advice, he rushed like a foolish person and slew all the above-mentioned Franks whom he found in the city,—70 men, and 5 excellent priests who attended them ; for they were not accustomed to undertake a journey or proceed anywhere without priests. The rest who were in the ships, having heaved anchors, departed with extreme sorrow and bitter tears, and came to us Christians in the city of Cocen.t as being near at hand. This place likewise has an infidel King, who, seeing them in deep commotion and great distress, summoned them to him, comforted them, and swore that he would never forsake them. But when the wicked King who had slain their companions became aware of this, he burned with rage, and having collected an immense army, he attacked them. Wherefore the Franks were compelled, together with the King to whom they had fled, to betake themselves to the most fortified castle on that sea coast, where they remained for some days. Then at length Christ compassionated them ; a great many ships from the country of those Franks were driven hither, and engaged the King of Calicut in a very grievous war ; and applying their engines they cast at him large stones, and killed many men from the army of the wicked King, and drove him and his forces from the sea coast. Thence the Franks departed to the city of Cocen, and built there a

large fort, and strengthened it with a garrison of 300 warlike soldiers of their own nation, of whom some worked the engines, and others were musketeers. There were placed nearly 50 immense engines, and about 100 small ones besides muskets. Meanwhile, the King, their enemy (may his memory perish!), renewed the war. But afterwards engaging in battle, he was conquered through the might of Christ, 3,000 of his men being lost, whom the engines shattered ; and he fled to his own city, Calicut. The Franks, therefore, followed him by sea,—for his city is washed by the sea,—they seized him and took and destroyed his ships, and killed about 100 Ishmaelites, and the Captains of the vessels in which they were found. They destroyed the city also with their engines.*

" ' Having finished the war, the commander of the abovementioned Franks came to another city, called Cananor, in the same region of Malabar, to another infidel King, and demanded of him a place in his city where they might freely transact their business, and the men of their nation might reside in future years, landing henceforward at that place. He gave them a spot, and a spacious house, received them with great joy and treated them very kindly. The Christian commander, in return, offered to the King garments embroidered with gold, and stuffs of purple colour. Afterwards having purchased 4,000 tagaras of pepper, he departed to his own country. About 20 men of their nation reside in the city of Cananor. Proceeding to them, after we had arrived from the town Hormizda.t at Cananor, the city of the Indians, we signified to them that we were Christians, and disclosed our condition and rank, and were welcomed by them with extreme gladness. They presented to us splendid robes, and 20 drachms of gold, and praised our journey for the sake of Christ beyond its desert. We remained among them 2^ months, and they directed that, on a fixed day, we should perform the sacred

mysteries, that is, celebrate the sacrifice. And they have fixed a place convenient for performing prayer, that is, an Oratory : their priests daily perform and offer the holy Sacrifice, for this is their custom and rite. Wherefore on the Lord's day, Nosardel,* after their priest had celebrated, we also were admitted and performed the mystery : and it greatly pleased their sight. Setting out thence we came to our Christians, who are distant 8 days' journey from that place. The number of the above-mentioned Franks is reckoned about 400 men ; and the terror and fear of them fell upon all the infidels and Ishmaelites of those regions. But the country of the Franks is called Portugal, one of the kingdoms of the Franks ; and their king is named Emmanuel.t We beseech Emmanuel that he might preserve him.

" ' Blame us not, brethren, that we have lengthened out this Epistle, for we wished and desired to signify these things to your excellence. And may the Lord be with us all! Amen !
