Very important for contemporary information on Dutch settlements in Southern India, especially Ceylon. "Baldeaus arrived in Ceylon in 1656 from Batavia with four other pastors and remained on the island until 1665. He immediately assigned himself and one other pastor to Jaffna, the Tamil region in the north of the Island (...). The pastors set about taking over the churches and schools left by the various Catholic missions and converting their flocks to the 'true Reformed faith'. Baldaeus and his pastors concentrated on the younger members of the community (...). Baldaeus soon acquired a knowledge of Tamil and translated the Ten Commandments, the Lord's Prayer, and the Articles of Faith. (...). Catholicism remained well-rooted in Ceylon, and after the departure of Baldaeus the Reformed Church there fell into decline. (...). He also provides a detailed description of the Hindu religion, although borrowing much from the earlier work of the missionary Abraham Roger." (Howgego). SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LXXXII.
