Hinduism - Who Was Viramamunivar?



Father Constanzio Beschi (1680–1747), an Italian Jesuit who spent 36 years in Tamil Nadu, was given the pseudonym Viramamunivar.


Beschi learned the local language and adopted the local way of life, as did many other early Jesuits.

He translated parts of the Old and New Testament into literary Tamil as part of his missionary work, and his command of the language and poetic conventions makes this work a seminal work in Tamil literature.
