The 2019 updated edition of The Myth of Saint Thomas and the Mylapore Shiva Temple is a complete study of the St. Thomas in India legend—its origin, history in India, and communal ramifications. The book is named after the main, 24-chapter essay by Ishwar Sharan and includes authoritative, independent articles by senior journalists and research scholars.

The book exposes in detail the vicious blood libel perpetrated by Christians against Hindus for centuries, that a Hindu king and his Brahmin priests murdered Apostle Thomas on a hilltop south of Madras, and the unconscionable support for this libel by India’s mainstream secular media.

Notably a chapter in the book documents the pronounced pro-Christian bias of the Encyclopaedia Britannica and popular on-line reference portal Wikipedia. Both encyclopedias carry fanciful, non-factual entries for St. Thomas the Apostle in India that they refuse to correct or change.

And last but not least, the book documents the destruction of the original Kapaleeswara Shiva Temple by the Portuguese and its replacement by San Thome Cathedral on the Mylapore seashore in Chennai.

Indologist Dr. Koenraad Elst has written a comprehensive foreword for the book. In it he makes some pertinent remarks about Indian secularists and their uncritical acceptance of Christian mythology as Indian history.

The book has an extensive bibliography and is a valuable tool for researchers and historians.

References and related feature articles are available on the author's ACTA INDICA website.
