PREFACE People who have a sense of identity want to know their origins and about the lives of their ancestors. This work is an attempt to trace the origin of the Kattumangat branch of the Thanangat- Kattumangat family of Mulanthuruthy and to record the history of its members from available sources and from personal investigation. Syrian Christians of Kerala are an ancient people, proud of their Christian identity, history and traditions. Thanangat- Kattumangat is a large Syrian Christian family which has a known history from as far back as 1676 A.D. It has not been possible to trace it further back as it had its origin in a foreign land. This family has made a substantial contribution to the growth of the Christian faith in Kerala. Among its members were four bishops and more than seventy priests. Of the bishops, Mar Kurilos I, the founder of the Independent Syrian Church of Malabar in Tozhiyur and Mar Gregorios of Parumala are well known. ISBN:KATTUMANGATFAMILY
