THE CALL OF THE ORIENT:
A RESPONSE BY JESUITS IN THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY
by ANTHONY D'COSTA, S.J.
The author of THE CHRISTIANISATION OF THE GOA ISLANDS 1510-1567
(all copies sold out) now systematically traces the words and the deeds,
the heights and the depths of 15 relatively unknown personalities -
companions of Francis Xavier - as seen through a critical study
of their own letters and the letters of their contemporaries.
We get glimpses of the dangers these 15 chosen persons braved,
the risks they faced, the challenges they encountered as they responded
in their own unique ways to THE CALL OF THE ORIENT -
with illuminating insights into the sincere affection of those
who accepted their message - as also the adverse reaction of those
who did not.
This fascinating research work of Dr. Anthony D'Costa
is the 28th in the Series:
STUDIES IN INDIAN HISTORY AND CULTURE OF THE HERAS INSTITUTE.
