This chapter focuses on India's Thomas Christians and Thomas tradition. It argues that canonical belief in the significance of the arrival and survival of Thomas Christians from ancient times onwards is extremely important for understanding the entire history of Christianity in India. While much data has been uncovered and while there may yet be more that is continuously being sifted, the historicity of apostolic origins rests upon conjectural or uncertain evidence.
