Moran Mor Cyril Baselios Maphrian (Malayalam: സിറില് ബസേലിയോസ് ) or when referring exclusively to his being a Major Archbishop, Cyril Baselios Malancharuvil O.I.C. (born James Malancharuvil, 1935 – 2007) was the first Major Archbishop of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church based in Trivandrum, Kerala, elevated by Pope John Paul II.
He received a doctorate in canon law from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome in 1965, after taking a master's degree in psychology from St. John's University in New York City. He taught at St. Thomas Apostolic Seminary in Kottayam and St. Joseph's Pontifical Institute, Mangalapuzha, Aluva.
The Syro-Malankara Catholic Church raised to the status of a Major Archiepiscopal Church sui iuris on 10 February 2005 according to the norms of CCEO. He was the first Syro-Malakara to bear the title of Major Archbishop and his official title according to the West Syriac Tradition was Moran Mor Cyril Baselios Catholicos, which was earlier granted to the Syro-Malabar metropolitanate of Ernakulam–Angamaly and the Ukrainian Catholic Metropolitanate of Kyiv–Halyč and shortly after to the Romanian Catholic Metropolitanate of Făgăraş şi Alba Iulia.
Moran Mor Cyril Baselios died of a heart attack on 18 January 2007, in Trivandrum.
