The Goans I have known have acted like "St" Francis Xavier was a benevolent influence on Goa. I figured this was a case of the victors writing the history. One historical fiction book I read mentioned that he brought the Portuguese Inquisition over to Goa, but I haven't found much on Goa's history. I get the feeling most Goans don't know about it either--at least not the Goans that I got to know.
