It’s usually said that Protestant and evangelical Christians made very little missionary effort in the 16th-18th centuries. In fact, there was much more than we remember. But they used strategies that look very alien to modern eyes: whether trying to spread ‘civilisation’ as a prerequisite for conversion, or seeing these efforts as part of a global apocalyptic conflict.
This lecture will introduce this series about these early missionary projects; why they mostly failed; and why they still matter.
We are live-streaming all our lectures in 2021-22, or you can attend in person.
