TROPHIES, RELICS AND CURIOS? MISSIONARY HERITAGE FROM AFRICA TO THE PACIFIC. Ed. by Karen Jacobs et al. Sidestone Press, Leiden, 2015. 200 pp. with 200 ills. (25 col.). ISBN 9789088902710 In English.
Publisher's description: The British Missionary movement, which began in earnest in the early 19th century, was one of the most extraordinary movements of the last two centuries, radically transforming the lives of people in large parts of the globe, including in Europe itself. By exploring a range of artifacts, photographs and archival documents that have survived, or emerged from, these transformations, this volume sheds an oblique light on the histories of British Missionaries in Africa and the Pacific, and the ways in which their work is remembered in different parts of the world today. Short contributions describing the histories of particular items, accompanied by rich visual imagery, showcase the extraordinary l items that were caught up in histories of conversion, and are still controversial for many today. By focusing on the varied forms of missionary heritage, this volume aims to question the often used categories of trophies, relics or curios, and highlight the complexity involved in the missionary encounter. This volume is the result of a research networking project bringing together specialists of missionary collections, i.e. artifacts, photographs or archival documents.
