In the early modern period (roughly 1500-1800) Christian missionaries were engaged in an ambitious project: the spiritual and material transformation of the world, through its attempted conversion to Christianity. This course examines the lives and words of European missionaries and their converts around the globe, and in doing so reveals early modern attitudes about religion, power, and exoticism.
