    About the Historical Index of Religious Missions

    [Red Arrow Image] (Continues from the top of the page) Although a large amount of the information concerns only Christian missions, I intend to provide information regarding other confessions, such as Buddhism, Islam or Judaism, and also proselytisms from the secular world: IGO's, NGO's, etc. The Index could also be used as a source of data in itself, a research tool on the ways traditional and new confessions try to communicate through the Internet.

    [Red Arrow Image] The Historical Index of Religious Missions is made of different pages which are always under construction. You will find Virtual Resources produced all over the world world dealing with the past and present of the Religious Missions. The documents and materials found on this site should not be taken to reflect the view of the editor.

    [Red Arrow Image] The Religious Missions Index is a joint project between the European University Institute's Library and theHistory & Civilisation Department .
