Abstract

This study focuses on the use of language in Protestant missionary
publications. The author examines the communicative strategies for
legitimizing Swedish missions in Africa and Asia around 1900 and reveals
the ways in which intersections between Christian religious ideas and
colonialist, racist notions of superiority were used to justify
missionary activities.
