Christianity in India is as diverse and complicated as anything else in the subcontinent. Though the story of the Portuguese and the Goan Inquisition might dominate airwaves today, the history of Catholicism in Tamil Nadu offers fascinating examples of local Indian beliefs evolving in continuity with the veneration of Catholic saints. Anirudh Kanisetti speaks to independent researcher Vivek Joseph to learn about the peoples and practices involved in these connected dynamics.
