RARE. In 1852 the author travelled to Malabar Coast, from that central position he conducted his observation and research with members of the Syrian Church. “The object of the writer is to throw some additional light on the most heart-stirring chapter in Church history. The attention of Christian World is increasingly turned to ancient churches of the East; and not one of them should excite deeper sympathies, or call for more earnest prayer and loving effort, than “ the remnant which is left” in South India- the Syrian Church of Malabar; or as the members often call themselves, The Christians of St. Thomas”.
