Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Translated from Syriac to Malayalam by Rev. Fr. Kuriyakos Pallikkapparambil (1926 AD); Translated from Malayalam to English by Sarah Knight; With a Foreword by Sebastian P. Brock
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4355-5
Different parts of the Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary are known from the second century onwards. Translations and adaptations into Syriac and other languages also became available from very early centuries. The compilation in the Syriac language was translated into Malayalam in 1925, but an English translation containing the full text did not exist at all. This gap has been filled now by this work. Sebastian Brock’s Foreword gives important information on the background and authenticity of the different sources that form the basis of the text. This biography is unique in that it brings together some very early accounts of the birth of Mary, the birth of Jesus, the flight into Egypt, and most importantly, the very rare account of the ‘Dormition’ or ‘falling asleep’ of the Blessed Mother.
