Saint Thomas Christian (sect) (Christian sects, Christianity, ... Associated Concepts (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Christian sect centered along the Malabar Coast of southwestern India, said to have origins in the Christianization efforts of the apostle St. Thomas. The origins of the sect are uncertain, though they seem to have been in existence before the 6th century and probably derive from the missionary activity of the East Syrian (Nestorian) Church, which held that the two natures of Christ were two persons joined in a moral union. In geographic isolation from Syria, the sect has nonetheless retained the Chaldean liturgy, Syriac language, and fraternal ties with the Babylonian (Baghdad) patriarchate; their devotional practices also include Hindu religious symbolism.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Christelijke sekte die gevestigd was langs de Malabar-kust van Zuidwest-India, en die zijn oorsprong zou hebben in het kersteningswerk van de apostel Thomas. De werkelijke oorsprong van de sekte is onzeker, maar hij lijkt al voor de 6e eeuw te zijn ontstaan, als gevolg van de missionarisactiviteiten van de Assyrische (Oost-Syrische of Nestoriaanse) Kerk, volgens welke de twee naturen van Christus twee personen zijn, die in een morele band verenigd zijn. De sekte leefde geografisch afgescheiden van Syri├ź maar heeft de Chaldeeuwse liturgie en de Oudsyrische taal behouden, en onderhield broederbanden met het Babylonische patriarchaat van Bagdad. De godsdienstoefeningen bevatten ook hindoe├»stisch religieus symbolisme.
