Chavara archives at Mannanam. A treasure house for researchers
The library and archives at St. Joseph's Monastery at Mannanam, in the Kottayam district of Kerala contain a vast collection of books, Manuscripts, and palm leaf documents that are relevant sources for researchers on Kerala history, Kerala church history, as well as the history of the Syriac language and liturgy in India. Of special interest to the followers of the Aramaic Project are the 114 Syriac manuscripts. Fr. Emmanuel Thelly, CMI prepared an annotated list of these manuscripts . We hope this video will draw attention from scholars from India and abroad. St. Joseph's Monastery (founded in 1831) is the mother house of the first indigenous religious Congregation for men in India, the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (C.M.I.). We are grateful to Fr. Antony Bunglowparampil, CMI, the director, and Bibin George, the librarian for allowing us to make this video.
