    According to the British historian Edward Hallett Carr, the task of the historian is neither to love the past for its own sake, nor to emancipate himself from the past, but to master and understand it as the key to the understanding of the present. In this process, the thoughts and actions of God and human beings blend, unite, at times appear at variance, cross each other, and even impede each other’s course; the final result being a wonderful mosaic, of which the most outstanding feature is the undying love of God for the human race.

    The Latin Christians of Kerala - a Study on their Origins, is the result of arduous research on a topic which has already been studied at some length. Still it helps to throw new light on the origin of the Latin Christians of Kerala, on the Synod of Diamper and on the insidious impact of the caste system on the evangelization activities of the Catholic Church. The fact that every assertion has been scientifically and impartially substantiated by the author sets it apart from some other opinionated works on the topic.

    This book is a presentation of the rationale behind Roberto de Nobili’s attempts at reconciling the Gospel with the cultural milieu of India. In the face of stiff opposition both in India and Rome, he wrote an apology for his method. This was the beginning of the controversy which has come down in history as the Malabar Rites Controversy - a controversy which was to hamper missionary efforts in India for over 300 years. It must be considered a great contribution to the study of Christianity in India.
