Description

The pioneer Jesuit missionary Francis Xavier’s travels took him to much of maritime South and East Asia, including Ceylon and Japan. The cult of Xavier in Ireland has involved widespread distribution of hagiographies and biographies. Bouhours’ text was one of the earliest and most popular, being translated into English in 1688 by John Dryden.
