This documentary sourcebook presents a selection of articles from indigenous Christian journals from four regions in Asia and Africa around 1900 (India, South Africa, West Africa, and the Philippines). It highlights the voices of local Christian elites and their contributions to the public discourses in different colonial societies on both continents in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. At the same time, it also intends to create an awareness of the various links and transregional (or even transcontinental) networks among indigenous Christian elites that were established through these (and related) journals.
Resulting from a larger research project on periodicals and journals of Asian and African Christians around 1900, this sourcebook is the first compilation of such texts in a comparative perspective. The volume is of particular interest to students and scholars in the field of history of Christianity, mission and colonial studies, globalization, cultural, religious and regional studies, and history of the press.
