In this seminar I will present my transcription and translation of a 16th century Konkani manuscript about the birth of Rama. The text is a part of a version of Ramayana in Konkani, which was written down in Latin script and studied by Catholic missionaries in Goa in order to learn to use the literary style and develop an adequate religious terminology.
