HMML's work in India has been the subject of two news reports: the March 2012 issue of National Geographic and a 2009 PBS Religion & Ethics News Weekly Report.
Rev. Fr. Ignatius Payyappilly, a HMML partner visiting from Kerala, India, will take an in-depth look at some of the palm-leaf manuscripts. The Syrian Christian palm leaves and inscriptions are among the least examined primary sources of history writing and academic inquiry in Kerala. The palm leaves record the facts of day-to-day life of the people and activities of the church. These records allow historians to draw together the socio-economic life of the people with their religious life. The micro history formulated can contribute to the development of the comprehensive history of Kerala. Missed the lecture? View it on the CSB/SJU Digital Commons.
