a study of the first archbishop of goa, d. gaspar de le?o (1560 - 1576), who played a significant role in the christianization process of the portuguese-controlled lands in asia. during this period d. gaspar administrated the archbishopric of goa, the goa inquisition (the sole inquisitorial court instituted in a portuguese domain) was created, the first provincial council in the region was founded in 1567, and the constitutions of the archbishopric of goa were drawn up, in consonance with the council of trent's resolutions. all of which motivated the formation of provincial synods and the work of the bishops in carrying out a spiritual reform among the clergy and the faithful. d. gaspar was influenced by mystic christian tendencies and published works about the mystical union or the expansion of evangelism, replete with prophecies concerning the final conversion of muslims and jews.
