"In The Mughal Padshah, Jorge Flores offers both a lucid English translation and the Portuguese original of a previously unknown account of the court and household of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir (r. 1605-27). Probably penned by the Jesuit priest Jer‚onimo Xavier in 1610-11, the text reads quite differently than the usual missionary report. Surviving in four different versions, the treatise reveals intriguing insights on Jahangir and his family, the Mughal court and its political rituals, as well as the imperial elite and its military and economic strength. A comprehensive introduction situates this text in the 'disputed' landscape of European accounts on Mughal India, as well as illuminates the actual conditions of production, propagation and readership of such a text between South Asia and the Iberian Peninsula"--Provided by publisher.

About the Author:

Jorge Flores (Ph.D. New University of Lisbon, 2005) is Professor of Early Modern Global History at the European University Institute (Florence, Italy). He has published extensively on the social and cultural history of the Portuguese Empire in South Asia, 16th-17th centuries.

Review:

"The translation of the Portuguese manuscript into English is excellent and it will allow many scholars and students of Mughal India or the Jesuit missions in south Asia to explore a unique source. Together with the well-researched and stimulating introduction provided by Jorge Flores, this work will find a prominent place in the study of the Jesuit missions in the Mughal empire." Joao Vicente Melo, University of Liverpool. In: Journal of Jesuit Studies, Vol. 4, No. 3 (2017), pp. 529-531.
