The Conversion of India: From Pantaenus to the Present Time (A.D. 193-1893) is a historical survey of all the missionary activities that took place in India from the beginning of Christianity until the end of the nineteenth century. Smith begins with the early contact of Jewish traders with the Indians, moving to links between India and the Patriarchates of Antioch and Alexandria and the "Nestorian" missionary expansion. Smith then gives a full description of the attempts of the Roman Catholics, Dutch, and British missionaries in evangelizing India, then presents the prospects for American missionaries. Smith's work is resourceful for understanding the American missionary mentality of the nineteenth century.

John of Tella’s Profession of Faith

The Legacy of a Sixth-Century Syrian Orthodox Bishop
Translation and Introduction by Volker Menze & Kutlu Akalın
ISBN: 978-1-59333-843-5
John became bishop of Tella in 519, but left for exile only two years later when Justin I enforced the Council of Chalcedon which Syrian Orthodox Christians refused to accept. John became one of Justinian’s most dangerous ecclesiastical opponents by ordaining thousands of deacons and priests who formed the first generation of the Syrian Orthodox hierarchy. In the present text John lays out his faith in a way which gives an inside view of how a non-Chalcedonian bishop of the sixth century located himself and his co-religionists within the Christian tradition and how he understood the foundation of the Church.
