- Ancient Church of the East
The Ancient Church of the East separated from the
Assyrian Church of the East, after Mar Shimun XXIII, the patriarch of Assyrian Church of the Eastmade reforms which were not supported. These reforms were in direct opposition with the sanctity of being one of the oldest Christian churches in the world, changes such as those of using the new Roman calendar rather than the old calendar. For this reason the followers of the Ancient Church of the East resisted the changes made to the church and in 1968Mar Thoma Darmo, a native of Mesopotamia, who was Metropolitan of the Assyrian Church of the East in India from 1952 to 1968, based at Trichur separated from the Assyrian Church of the East, and became head of the Ancient Church of the East in October 1968 and relocated to Baghdad. He died the following year.
