  • India and the Apostle Thomas: An Inquiry, with a Critical Analysis of the Acta Thomae, by Dr. A. E. Medlycott, Bishop of Triconia (London: David Nutt, 1905). Available at Internet Archive (which appears to have the better copy) and Internet Archive (2nd copy). [N.B., This is a very thorough and erudite work. F.A. D’Cruz in his St. Thomas, the Apostle, in India (1905) notes that Dr. Medlycott was at one time Vicar Apostolic of Trichur in Cochin State.]

Almighty Father, we thank You for having raised up St. Thomas to bring the one true Church of Your Divine Son to India. Move us to follow his example, that Your glory may be ever known. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
