Title: Uneasy lies Rivara's chair
Author: Souza, Teotónio R. de
Abstract: Prof. George Moraes belonged to a generation of Indo-Portuguese historians who believed in Portugal’s civilizing mission, which he sought to emphatically distinguish from the colonial performance of the English and the Dutch, “who were bent solely on trade and wars”. Prof. Moraes added that it should not be forgotten that it was the Goan Priest and the Goan doctor that assisted Portugal in its civilizing mission in Portuguese Africa. Concluding his paper Prof. Moraes added a wish: "It would indeed be a fitting tribute to his memory and grateful acknowledgement of his services to Indian history if a group of scholars would come forward to prepare a centenary memorial edition of his works which are very rare but of whose immense usefulness there can be no two opinions.” We saw the death centenary and also the birth bicentenary of Cunha Rivara pass away a few years ago. I had the privilege of speaking in a memorial event organized by the Municipality of Arraiolos on 20th June 2009, and to deliver a commemorative lecture at the Public Library of Evora that same week. A summary of those lectures may be read at the website of Ciberdúvidas da Língua Portuguesa [http://bit.ly/1rTDVWt]
