To overview

New in Brill Open Access: Encounters between Jesuits and Protestants in Africa, Robert Aleksander Maryks and Festo Mkenda, S.J., Jesuit Studies Volume 13.

The book offers a critical reflection on the often more competitive than cordial relationships between Jesuit and Protestant missionaries in 19th- and early 20th-century Africa.

The five-hundredth anniversary of the Protestant Reformation (1517) provides an opportunity to reflect in a new way on the relationship between the Protestants and the Society of Jesus, which was founded twenty-three years later (1540). The essays in Encounters between Jesuits and Protestants in Africa offer a critical reflection on the often more competitive than cordial relationships between Jesuit and Protestant missionaries in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Africa.
