Didymus - The Twin is historical and religious fiction similar to the Herman Hesse novel, Siddhartha. It is the quest of the apostle St. Thomas to find a true meaning in life after the death of Jesus. It is a first person account of the journey and work of St. Thomas in south India, after the death of Jesus. The tale is unorthodox and is based on a viewpoint other than those of the five apostles of the New Testament. It is rather the account of the doubter, Thomas.
