What is the language of the Syriac Orthodox Church?



The official language of the church is Syriac, a dialect of  Aramaic - the language spoken by Lord Jesus Christ and His disciples. All of its liturgy originates from Syriac sources. The church, however, allows the faithful to use local languages along with Syriac. Many liturgical works have been translated into Arabic, Malayalam, English and Turkish.
