Perera - Family #

1. Father Simon Gregory Perera, (b. at Kalutara on June 5, 1882; d. 1950) Famous Author and Scholar. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~lkawgw/sgperera.htm

WHO WERE HIS PARENTS AND FAMILY?

Fr. S. G. Perera, S.J.

Fr. Simon Gregory Perera was born in Kalutara on 5th June 1882 and died inGalle in 1951. He became a Jesuit on 7th September 1905. He was an eminent scholar and the leading historian of his day, specializing in the Portugese, Christian / Catholic and Jesuit history of Ceylon (Sri Lanka). While studying for the priesthood in Rome he obtained copies of letters sent by Jesuits who worked in Ceylon during the Portuguese colonization. He translated them and published them in learned journals. He also obtained copies of the documents of the Oratorian order who had saved the faith in Ceylon during the Dutch domination. From this work he was able to write various articles, give lectures and two of his most well known publications are; “The Jesuits in Ceylon: Life of Fr. J. Goncalves” and “The Life of Venerable Father Joseph Vaz”. At the request of the Ceylon Government, he translated into English the huge Portuguese work of Fr. Queyros – “Conquista temporal e spiritual de Ceilao” (The Temporal and Spiritual Conquest of Ceylon). Fr. S. G. Perera’s “The History of Ceylon for Schools from 1500 onwards has remained the most comprehensive and accurate text book to date.

Fr. Perera was for many years a teacher at St. Aloysius College, Galle. During his lifetime he put together a personal library of valuable ancient documents, manuscripts and books. A year after his death in 1951, the Jesuits and the old boys of St. Aloysius College, founded the Fr. S.G. Perera Memorial Oriental Library in his memory. Fr. Chiriati SJ and Fr. Perniola SJ, built up the library through constant updating and renewal, and took care to preserve the old books. In 1976, this library came under the care of Fr. Aloysius Pieris SJ at the Tulana Research Centre for Encounter and Dialogue. Today the Tulana Library in Gonawala, Kelaniya, of which the Fr. S. G. Perera Memorial Oriental Library is an integral part, has quadrupled in size and is internationally renowned as a resource centre for research in Indology, Buddhism, Christian Theology and Philosophy, Western Culture, and Sri Lankan and South Asian History and Culture.
