Place: Room G32, the 3rd floor of the Shingakukan, Imadegawa Campus, Doshisha University
  • Gavin James Campbell (Professor, Graduate School of Global Studies, Doshisha University)
We will have Prof. Gavin James CAMPBELL from the Graduate School of Global Studies who will talk about “Transpacific Protestantism in the Age of Empire”.

This talk examines the relationship between Protestant missionaries, their home mission boards, and Japanese, Korean, Indian and Chinese converts in the late 19th century. In particular, it examines how each of these groups debated sensitive issues such as ancestor reverence, and the eternal fate of ancestors who died before hearing about Christianity.
