Comment posted ‘Jornada of Dom Alexis de Menezes: A Portuguese account of the Sixteenth century Malabar’ edited by Dr. Pius Malekandathil by John Mathew.
Thanks for the detailed information! You’ve satiated my curiosity, at least until I can get my own copy.
I noticed you mentioned various dates clustered around the 4th and 10th centuries for the various churches — these are the same dates that i’ve often seen reported on websites, in various (citation-less) articles on those various Churches, or elsewhere (e.g., the Mavelikara St Mary’s Church has a foundation stone which mentions the 1000 year celebrations a few decades ago).
I had always wondered where those dates came from. Was it this Journal that provides our first documentary reporting for those dates? Or are those dates only from the footnotes of Dr. Pius M.?
