This volume is a collection of wide ranging essays on Indian Christianity and Christian missionaries in India. It attempts to identify and reflect upon Christianity's regional and temporal variations from early modern times, its links with global Christian institutions and movements, its diverse cultural practices, and its relationship with caste and class. The essays herein underline the existence of many Christianities in Indian history, their mutual linkages, their exchanges and interactions as well as their debates with other Indian religions and communities. They anchor Christian historical experiences within a larger Indian modernity and identify the specificities and influences of Christian identities as well as locate their intermeshing with other Indian identities. This carefully researched volume will interest not just scholars of Religious Studies and Modernity in the Indian subcontinent, but also all those who are interested in the multi-faceted story of Christianity's emergence and growth in the same, and its many denominations' varying interactions with various forms of state politics and policy. Departments of Medieval, Modern, and Religious History, and of Cultural Studies, will also find this volume a pertinent and useful addition to their institutional holdings. Printed Pages: 300.
