Abstract :
Investigates the adaptation of Christian imagery for the decoration of Mughal palaces under the reign of Emperor Akbar and his son Jahangir in the late 16th and early 17th cs. Akbar invited a mission of Jesuits to live in his palace, and had them create hundreds of images of Jesus, Mary and Christian saints, which were then used in court rituals and royal festivities. Shows that the emperors actually were educated by the Jesuits as well, and had a thorough understanding of the religious doctrine behind these works of art. ;
