Description
About the Book
Whitewash, red Stone tells the, church architecture in Goa from the 16th to the 20th centuries. In doing so, it answers questions which have been raised by students and scholars of architectural history for long: What is a Goan church? When and how did the characteristically Goan church appear? How did it evolve architecturally? How can one explain the fact that an original type of Catholic church appeared in a territory as small as Goa?

Even as the 17th century initiated a particular transition in the stylistics of church building in the region, the full development of Goan church architecture was completed in the 18th century when local communities (comunidades) or powerful local hierarchs (gaunkars) often took over the reconstruction of the churches founded by the Jesuits or the Franciscans and transformed them into buildings of a new type. The whole of Goa

(Ilhas, Bardez and Salcete) was covered by a `white mantle of churches'. Indeed, indo-Portuguese

architecture as it emerged in Goa was an important manifestation of the material culture of a group of people who were converted to Catholicism in the 16th and 17th centuries a group of people who had to create a distinct culture for themselves. The structures they built were, Therefore, buildings by Goans, sometimes designed by Goan architects and masons, including Goan Catholic priests, and, in many cases, commissioned by Goan landowners or Goan local communities; in other words, they were ‘native' buildings. Supplemented with photographs, plans and drawings throughout, this important volume is a must read for students and scholars of architecture, history of architecture, social and cultural history of Goa, as well as the informed lay reader interested in the history of w hat soon came to be recognized as a unique moment in world architecture.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
