Syrian orthodox church occupies an important position among the ancient independent churches of the world. The Syrian Patriarchs of Antioch are successors of St. Peter. They are the head of the Syrian orthodox churches.

In Kerala, foundation of Syrian orthodox church is ascribed to St. Thomas and the missionary enterprises of Syria. It is believed that St. Thomas came to Muziris (present Kodungallur) in A.D. 52 from Edessa, capital of Eastern Syria during the time of king Gondophornes. According to another belief Christianity spread in Kerala by the efforts of Cana Thoma, 3 bishops of Edessa, clergymen and Syrian families in A.D. 345. Since there are no historical or anthropological evidences, it is difficult to make foolproof statement of the origin of the Syrian Christians of Kerala.
