Abstract This article deals with Syriac manuscripts copied or preserved in
India. It shows how they are a good mirror of the history of Syriac
Churches and communities in Kerala: manuscripts copied prior to the
arrival of the Portuguese may not have been very numerous and seem
to have been mainly intended for liturgical use. From the 16th century
onwards, several script traditions developed which are linked with different communities.
