The Eucharistic Liturgy of the St. Thomas Christians and the Synod of Diamper

Paul Pallath (Author) Oriental Institute of Religious Studies (India)

Since the sixteenth century it was propagated in the West that before the Synod of Diamper in 1599 the Liturgy of the St Thomas Christians was full of errors, heresies and blasphemies. How did these Christians celebrate the Eucharistic Liturgy before the arrival of the Western missionaries in the Sixteenth century? What was the shape of the Qurbana at the epoch of the Synod of Diamper? Which were the heretical doctrins and expressions of schism found in the pre-Diamper Eucharistic made by the Western missionaries, especially by Archbishop Menezes? What was the structure of the Qurbana after the Synod? This book is an attempt to answer such important questions, from historical, liturgical the theological perspectives, based on original sources and pertinent document.

About the author

Paul Pallath

Msgr. Dr. Paul Pallath, at present a Relator of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, an associate professor at the Pontifical Oriental Institute in Rome and a Consultor at the Congregation for the Oriental Churches, formerly rendered his service as an offical of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments for 16 years and as the office-head at the Tribunal of the Roman Rota for two years. He has published 18 books and more than 75 articles, many of which deal with the history, liturgy and spiritual heritage of th St Thomas Christians in India.

"As a canonist, theologian and historian, he (Paul Pallath) logically brings out the theological arguments based on scripture and tradition of the Chruch for re-establishing the unity of Christian intiation both in theory and praxtice. Though the author's special reference is to the Syro-Malabar Chruch his arguments are relevant and convincing even for other Chruches, without excluding the Latin Chruch".
