What is the real history of Knanaya Community in India?

Knanaya are a group of Christians in Kerala who follow endogamy. They are form separate dioceses in Roman Catholic Church and Jacobite Syrian Church. They are from Persia or Antioch? What is the real history of them?. Most of the writers says they are from Persia. Modern writers says they are old Catholics. What is the real history of them?

  3. The Knanaya people from Edessa under the Syrian Pathriarkese and remember there's no relation b/n knanaya and the pope,it starts only after the portugese invasion in the 16th century,exactly after the udayamperror synod in ad1599.

  7. an anonmous said, first time knanaya people was under the pope ,never knanaya catholics joined with with latin's for money and Gold ,because latin's persicuted non latins and they offered money and gold to non latin's to join with them. so that means kna catholics failed to stay in their own fore father's faith and traditions.

  9. KANAI PEOPLE ARE MIGRANTS FROM PERSIA
    WHEN SAPORE 2 TORCHERED CHRISTIANS IN PERSIAN EMPIRE (AD329 TO 379)
    AT THAT TIME EDESSA WAS CONQURED BY PERSIAM EMPEROR
    PERSIA WAS UNDER THE PATRIRCH OF CATHOLICOS OF CELUTIA CETAPHON (TODAYS ASYRIAN CHURCH OF THE EAST)
    KNAI THOMA FLEED FROM PERSIA TO MALABAR COST WITH THEIR LIFE (NOT ANY PATRIACH OR CATHOLICOS SENT THEM TO KERALA).

    Knanaya Christians are Christians under the control of our METRAPOLITHA(how we call our pope) in ANTHYOKYA, Siriya. the knanaya people are called
    JACOBITE SIRIYAN KNANAYA CHRISTIANS

    you could understand who knanaya people are from the above name.
