Thomas Stephens' Khristapurana: publicity

The Mangalore magazine run by the Catholic Association of South Kanara has kindly published my piece on the Nashik book release of Nelson Falcao's edition and translation of the Khristapurana. I am happy, because I hope this publicity will lead to the discovery / recovery of manuscripts that might be lying around in Mangalore, in the possession of private individuals and families. I am hoping at least to get news about the families of Mr. Jerome A. Saldanha (sub-judge of Alibagh, Bombay Presidency, at turn of the 20th century), Mr Julian Coelho, Fr. S.B.C. Luis, and Messrs. Dunbar Brothers, Parel. These were the people who lent their manuscripts to Prof. Joseph L. Saldanha, whose edition of the Khristapurana was published in Mangalore way back in 1907.

In the meantime, my feature review of Falcao's edition has appeared in Divyadaan: Journal of Philosophy and Education 20/3 (2009), and is due to appear also in Vidyajyoti: Journal of Theological Reflection in March 2010.
