Book description
From the back cover: Set in seventeenth century India, The Missionary focuses on the relationship between Hilarion, a Portuguese missionary to India, ad Luxima, and Indian prophetess. Both are aristocratic, devoted to their religions, bound by vows of chastity, and begin the novel biased against other cultures. This Broadview Literary Texts edition also includes extensive primary source appendices that situation the novel in relation to Irish, Portuguese and Indian history, as well as to the literature of sensibility and travel writing.
