This book covers the authors deep research into the religious activities of the Catholic Orders in Goa in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries which ushered in and established the Catholic Faith in the region, on the ashes perhaps of an earlier implantation of it that had run to seed and virtually vanished by the time of their arrival in the region.

This book seeks to identify the precise role played and activities carried out by the Catholic Religious Orders at that time as well as to know of the possibility of worthwhile work being done by Orders apart from the Jesuits.
