Mingana, who had shortly before studied the expansion of Christianity into east Asia (that volume is also available in the Analecta Gorgiana series), here specifically looks at the early history of Christianity in India. He looks at most (if not all) of the passages in Syriac and Christian Arabic literature, as well as other documentary evidence, pertaining to the subject. The introductory remarks cover the relationship of Christianity in India to that in other lands, as well as the “elasticity” of the name India in the sources of Late Antiquity. An appendix includes several short Syriac texts referred to in the body of the study. This important survey of the evidence on a popular subject remains of significant import for all who study early missionary activity in the east and Christianity in India.
