History Hour 73 – “Written in Stone” Book Release & Discussion by Dr. Cristina Osswald held on Tuesday, 29th January 2013.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Goa was among the first provinces established by the Jesuits worldwide. This book offers an insightful look at the artistic features of the buildings created by the nearly five-centuries-old religious society in Goa. It focuses on their architecture, painting, sculpture, woodcarving and more. Written in Stone also unveils many intricate details about the artistic and cultural influences that shape these structures. Osswald argues that Jesuit art in Goa, the Modo Goano, took on a very different approach to Jesuit art elsewhere.

Cristina Osswald is an art historian and has a PhD on Jesuit art in Goa (1542 to 1655) from the European University Institute, Florence. She did post-doctoral research on the life of the Jesuits and Franciscans in Portugal, India and Brazil (16th to 18th century), with the Universidade do Minho (Portugal), the UNED (Madrid) and UNICAMP (Brazil). She teaches at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa’s Department of Art History. Cristina Osswald spoke on the Jesuit buildings in Goa and their artistic and architectural features.
