BANHA, Manuel

BANHA, Manuel. 1??? — 1???. Father. Portuguese (?) Franciscan Missionary in India, probably in the 17th century. He is mentioned as the author of an unpublished Konkani dictionary, but the manuscript has disappeared.

Publications: Apparently nothing is preserved.

Sources: Dahlmann 1891, 16, similar brief mention in some more recent books, but not in the old Franciscan Biobibliography; all other brief references seem to be derived from Dahlmann.
