The Syro- churches[edit]

I think it would be helpful to have a brief recap in this article on the distinction between this church and the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church. They are both Eastern Rite Catholic churches in India whose liturgy is based on the Chaldean tradition, yes? I'm sure there are any number reasons why there are two of them, but you can't really tell from this page or the other. --Jfruh (talk) 22:34, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

The Syro-Malankara Catholic Church is of Antiochian tradition and not of Chaldean.--omalloor 08:35, 18 February 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kuzhinapurath (talkcontribs)

Requested move of interest[edit]

Reorganization[edit]

This article is a lot better than the others. I suggest it to be split and parts of it to be organised as history of the Major archbishopric of Thrivandrum and another articles for the major archbishops. There is an info-box for the catholic bishops. You'll find it if you go to page of one catholic bishop.If you have photographs of the acting or the late archbishops without copyrights you can upload them.

I agree, but two of the metropolitans, Venerable Geevarghese Mar Ivanios and Cyril Mar Baselios, already have articles, so the information here would need to be merged into the existing articles. Gentgeen (talk) 07:30, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
If there are such articles, of course. Drjmarkov (talk) 07:58, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
GREAT JOB!!! i haven't checked out the page in awhile, but the new information is a welcome addition. The page looks to awesome and congrats to all who have been updating it.


Articles on Common History[edit]

There are Six articles which claim common history of Saint Thomas Christians out of this 4 have almost similar contents about the same period. To avoid repetitive articles and to improve the quality of the article, share about WP:RELY sources and re organization of these articles.Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Indian Christianity#About the articles on Saint Thomas Christians common historyPamparam (talk) 03:07, 23 August 2009

Honorifics, run-on titles[edit]

An editor reverted edited material to text that violates WP:MOS against honorifics. These are not used in Wikipedia.

Double titles sound silly. A person is either a Baselios, or Catholicos, or a Dr., not any two. Which is superior? Pick one. Student7 (talk) 16:09, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Baselios is not just a title, it is part of the name. Its either Moran Mor baselios cleemis catholica bava or Major Archbishop Baselios cleemis. The later is not much used inside the church. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Philippjames (talkcontribs) 17:50, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

The Usage of Catholicos is to confuse syrian christians in india. Holy See of Rome has clearly ruled out that the title Catholicos cannot be given to the major arch bishop. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ZachariaVarghese (talkcontribs) 09:47, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

As per Malankara tradition it is catholicos. The arch bishop usage is with respect to Roman titles which is not used in malankara liturgy. One should understand the Malankara Syrian catholic church enjoy its own autonomy in traditions and liturgy and rome has no jurisdiction on any title below catholicos. The real title of the head of malankara syran catholic church is "Moran Mor Baselios Cleemis Catholica Bava" which is used in church liturgy. Though Moran Mor is considered honorrific by wiki, it is inseparable from the name of the head of the church in real usage. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.192.20.97 (talk) 15:46, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Excessive detail[edit]

This is an article about the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church as a whole. Putting names of individual parishes, schools and clergy in it is inappropriate detail. That information should be moved to articles on the various eparchies, and really is not necessary even there. That detailed information is available on the official websites of the Church and of the Eparchies, and it is not the job of Wikipedia to duplicate their information. Wikipedia is supposed to present information from independent published sources. -- Chonak (talk) 23:38, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
