Baselios Paulose I was born on January 17, 1836 in India. He died on May 3, 1914 (age 78). The first Catholicos of the East after the Church of the East was reestablished in India between the years 1912 and 1914.
At the Kunnamkulam Church in 1877, he was conferred the title of bishop by Patriarch Peter, who ordained him as Mar Evanios Methropolitan. Even though he was only in charge for a year and a half, this time in the history of the Indian Malankara Orthodox Church is still regarded as a significant period. After the passing of his older brother, who served as a deacon in the church, his family encouraged him to follow in his brother’s footsteps and join the congregation.
