Christianity in India has a long, complex and varied history. It accounts for 24,080,016 or 2.3 percent of the total population1 and is the second largest minority religion in India. Twothirds of this population is Roman Catholic and almost 14 million Christians are Dalits2 (Mosse 2012: ix; Michael 2010: 52). Although, the census uses the umbrella term Christian to denote the population, there are numerous sects within Christianity including Roman Catholics, Syrian Christians and several Evangelical and Protestant sects. Each has its own lineage, history and legends (Frykenberg 2008: x). Christian population centers are Goa, Nagaland, Mizoram, Manipur, Meghalaya, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Arunachal Pradesh and the Union Territories of Pondicherry and Daman and Diu (Robinson 2003).
