Abstract :
The St. Joseph Monastery, Mannanam, Kottayam, has a collection of 105 Syriac manuscripts and some 350 volumes of Syriac printed books (not completely catalogued). This collection is a witness to the Malabar tradition, with its transformation after the Synod of Diamper and especially in the 19th and 20th centuries. This mine of source materials will throw much light on the history of the Malabar Liturgy and on the transmission and transformation of the East Syrian liturgical tradition on the Malabar coast.
