~~`+`~~
Thomas the Apostle, sometimes informally called Doubting Thomas
or Didymus which means "The Twin", was one of the Twelve Apostles
of Jesus Christ, according to the New Testament.
He is best known from the account in the Gospel of Saint John,
where he questioned Jesus' resurrection when first told of it,
followed by his confession of faith as both "My Lord and my God"
on seeing Jesus' wounded body.
~~`+`~~
Traditionally, he is said to have traveled outside the Roman Empire
to preach the Gospel, traveling as far as India.
According to tradition, the Apostle reached Muziris, India in 52 AD
and baptized several people who are today known as Saint Thomas
Christians or Nasranis. After his death,
the reputed relics of Saint Thomas the Apostle were enshrined as far
as Mesopotamia in the 3rd century, and later moved to various places.
~~`+`~~
In 1258, some of the relics were brought to Abruzzo in Ortona, Italy,
where they have been held in the Church of Saint Thomas the Apostle.
He is often regarded as the Patron Saint of India,
and the name Thomas remains quite popular among Saint Thomas
Christians of India.

St. Thomas receiving the Virgin Mary's girdle from heaven.
Main article: Dormition of the Theotokos

~`+`~`THE ASSUMPTION OF MARY` MOTHER OF JESUS`~`+`~
~ ~ `+` ~ ~
According to The Passing of Mary, a text attributed
to Joseph of Arimathaea
Thomas was the only witness of the Assumption of Mary into heaven.
The other apostles were miraculously transported to Jerusalem to witness
her death. Thomas was left in India, but after her first burial,
he was transported to her tomb,
where he witnessed her bodily assumption into heaven,
from which she dropped her girdle.
In an inversion of the story of Thomas' doubts, the other apostles
are skeptical of Thomas' story until they see the empty tomb
and the girdle. Thomas' receipt of the girdle is commonly depicted
in medieval and pre-Tridentine Renaissance art,
the apostle's infamous doubting reduced to a metaphorical knot
in the Bavarian baroque Mary Untier of Knots.
