Early Syrian Christian Literature digitised

180 rare Syrian Christian documents in the possession of Mar Aprem Mooken of the Church of the East have been digitized. The project was undertaken by the St Ephrem Ecumenical Research Institute, Kerala, headed by Mar Aprem, in collaboration with Kerala state's communist government adn the Central European University in Budapest.

Among these documents is a facsimile edition of the canon law practised by St Thomas Christians. (Mar Aprem said the original had disappeared 7 centuries ago.) The law was compiled by Metropolitan Abdisho Bar Brikha of Nisibis and Armenia, a province of the Church of the East, in 1291. Istva Prczel of the Budapest University edited the revived text.

A Devanagari copy of the Khristapurana at TSKK

The TSKK (Thomas Stephens Konknni Kendr, Alto Porvorim) seems to have at least a copy of 'a Devanagari' manuscript of the Khristapurana. See the Annual Report 1999, at http://www.goacom.com/community/associations/asia/tskk/annrep99.html, as of 24 February 2011 (and my previous blog entry of today). Strange then that they said they had no copy when I inquired last year (2010).

Prof. Suresh Amonkar and the Khristapurana

In an article entitled "The Konkani School at the College of Salcete," (Herald [Panjim, Goa] Tuesday, 22 February 2011, p. 7)Victor Ferrao refers to Prof. Suresh Amonkar as "our very own expert on the work of Thomas Stephens." I just checked: Amonkar is not mentioned in the bibliography I have gathered on Thomas Stephens. Which means that he is probably not mentioned in Falcao, Bandelu, or Drago. Still, see this from http://www.goacom.com/community/associations/asia/tskk/annrep99.html, Annual Report of TSKK 1999:


12 July [1999]: Mr Suresh and Mrs Sudha Amonkar, the well-known educationists of Mapusa, visited TSKK. Mr Suresh Amonkar, who is busy translating Sanskrit and Prakrit literary and religious works into Konkani, took a keen interest in our collection of Prakrit and Old Marathi works. He was specifically interested in the different editions of Krist Puran of Fr Thomas Stephens. He could also consult the photocopy of the Devanagari manuscript of the same work found in our library.

Prof. Amonkar was chief guest at 'Amchem Daiz - 6' on the theme 'Raiturchi Siminar: Konknnichem Ball Pallnem' (Rachol Seminary: The Cradle of Konkani), Thursday, 17 February 2011. Dr Nelson Falcao delivered the keynote address. Students of the Seminary read four papers on the 'four other great fathers of the Konkani school of Rachol.' In his article, Ferrao mentions more than four:  Etienne de la Croix, Antonio Saldanha, Miguel Almeida, Diogo Ribeiro, Ignazio Archamone. There is of course Msgr. Sebastiao Rudolf Dalgado, much later.

Prof. Amonkar runs the New Goa High School, Mapusa, Goa, and has been President of the Goa SSC board. He received the Padmashri national award a few years ago. Both Nelson Falcao and Victor Ferrao tell me that he is translating the Khristapurana into Konkani.
