First published in 1630, Henry Lord's book was devoted to a discussion of Indian religions, and dealt with the strange beliefs and practices he had observed in India. Lord was a chaplain, not a missionary, and made a serious attempt to understand the religions rather than condemn them. His text was used as a source by later European writers on both religions, most notably Francois Bernier. By identifying the relevant persons (mythological as well a historical), this critical edition sets out to make Lord's work more accessible.
"A display of two foreign sects in the East Indies"; "a discovery of the Banian religion"; "the religion of the Persees".
