Description

This is a very interesting book which brings out how history has been distorted.

The myth of St. Thomas is a prototype of today's popular Jesus-I-India story. The first was invented by he Syrian Christians of Malabar and late taken over by the Portuguese, and he second was promoted around the beginning of this century by western spiritualists who also paraded as historians of the arcane.
