The Jews of Goa brings together scholars and researchers of international repute to discuss the history and legacy of the Jews and New Christians, through texts and primary documents, missionary literature and records of the Inquisitorial trials from the Lisbon and Goan archives. The volume covers new ground in examining the early and medieval history of the Jews, with a focus on the Portuguese period after Goa became a major power centre in India. It breaks the silence that has surrounded the Jews and New Christians and their descendants in Goa for the past few hundred years.
