  • Huge 1200 year's old Nestorian cross found in Pakistan occupied Kashmir

    Huge 1200 year's old Nestorian cross found in Pakistan occupied Kashmir .

    A massive, seven-foot tall cross was discovered in the Pakistani region of Baltistan by a team of researchers from the University of Baltistan, The Indian Express reports.

    The cross, carved from marble and weighing about 3 or four tonnes, the cross was described by the newspaper as probably "the largest one of its kind found in the Subcontinent".

    While the artefact in question is yet to be subjected to carbon dating, preliminary analysis have apparently identified it as a so called "Nestorian cross" from sometime between 900 and 1,200 years ago.

    According to tradition, Christianity was established in India in AD 52 with the arrival of Thomas the Apostle in Cranganore (Kodungaloor). Subsequently, the Christian community of the Malabar Coast established close ties with the other Christians of the Middle East and the Persian Empire. They eventually coalesced into the Church of the East led by the Catholicos-Patriarch of Seleucia-Ctesiphon.

    When the Portuguese arrived in India in the 16th century, they were ignorant of other Christian rites. Their ignorance led to the controversial Synod of Diamper that forced the Latin Rite on the Malabar Syriac Christians in 1599, even though the Syrian Church at Malabar was already in union with Rome.[1][2][3]St. Francis Xavier himself praised bishops who provided leadership to this community—including Mar Yaqob (Jacob), Mar Joseph, and Mar Abraham—and acknowledged their communion with the Holy See.

    In 1980, Saint Pope John Paul II said that the Syro-Malabar Church "has not ever been severed from the communion with the Church of Rome, in a continuity that the enormous geographic distance has never been able to break."[4]
