Series: Religious Cultures in the Early Modern World

This book builds on recent ground-breaking research on early modern Catholic missions which has shown that missionaries in Asia cooperated with and accommodated to the needs of local agents rather than being uncompromising promoters of post-Tridentine doctrine and devotion.
Shining a fresh light onto the history of early modern Catholic missions and the early modern Eurasian cultural exchange, this will be an important book for any scholar of Religious History, History of Cultural Contact/Global History and Early Modern History in Asia.
