Emotions and Christian Missions : Historical Perspectives, Hardback Book

Emotions and Christian Missions : Historical Perspectives Hardback

Edited by Karen Vallgarda

Part of the Palgrave Studies in the History of Emotions series

Description

This book explores the ways in which emotions were conceptualised and practised in Christian mission contexts from the 17th-20th centuries.

The authors show how emotional practices such as prayer, tears, and Methodist 'shouting', and feelings such as pity, joy and frustration, shaped relationships between missionaries and prospective converts.
