Example text

For what was sacred oratory but the use of Ciceronian eloquence to persuade and demonstrate the truth of the Christian faith? For what was Rome if not the capital of the universal Church, with Germans, Frenchmen, Flemings, Englishmen, Florentines, Venetians, Dalmatians, Greeks, Armenians, and many others congregated in their neighborhoods? And was not the Eternal City the monument of Christian triumph over pagan antiquity, when the Pantheon, a pagan temple, was consecrated as a Christian church and the Colosseum, once the site of bloody Christian martyrdom, testified in perpetual silence to the subjugation of pagan Rome?

28 portu gue se seas The great victory at Lepanto in 1571, when the combined Spanish–Venetian– papal fleet crushed the Ottoman navy, inspired Sebastian to dream of his own military triumphs and glories to rival those of his cousin King Philip II of Spain. In March, the Jesuit missionaries for India caught him in this mood, feverishly completing the final preparations for a crusade in North Africa. After the Jesuits had left on their own conquest of souls, in June Sebastian led an army of 15,000 to Morocco, where on 4 August, under a blazing African sun, he and the cream of Portuguese nobility perished in the disastrous defeat at Alcacer-Quivir.

Altogether, the Viceroy of India ruled over a population of 150,000 in Goa and its hinterlands, some 90,000 Christians and the rest Hindus. In spite of the great diversity of merchants, the Portuguese allowed only the practice of Catholicism in the city of Goa itself. It was the center of their civilization. In 1510, the Portuguese captured the old Indian settlement that had belonged to the Sultan of Bijapur, and turned it into their capital of the Estado India. In fact, it is an exaggeration to call the Portuguese possessions in Asia a state.
