In this fieldwork-based study, Corinne Dempsey examines Christianity in Kerala, which is home to India's ancient and thriving Christian community. Dempsey views their saint traditions as reflecting devotees' "hybrid" (Western and Eastern) identities in colonial and postcolonial times. She uses Kerala Christian devotional practices as points of comparison with European Catholicism and the indigenous Hinduism of the region.
