September 2014: New Biography of André Palmeiro

Harvard University Press has published Liam Matthew Brockey’s The Visitor: André Palmeiro and the Jesuits in Asia. Brockey examines how Palmeiro inspected missionary work in India following a controversy there surrounding the tactics employed by fellow Jesuit Roberto de Nobili. The publisher notes that this volume “tells the story of a theologian whose extraordinary travels bore witness to the fruitful contact—and violent collision—of East and West in the early modern era.”


  • Update: The Journal of Jesuit Studies has reviewed The Visitor (Volume 2, Issue 2).
