"Missionary Education and Empire" contributes simultaneously to both British imperial and Indian history. It demonstrates that missionary understandings and interactions with India, rather than being party to imperial ideologies, often diverged from metropolitan and imperial norms. Emphasis on ideas and rhetoric has marginalized the important roles of theology and interaction in the colonial context. Bellenoit engages with 'new imperial histories', and offers a more nuanced understanding of colonial interactions by examining the interplay between institutions, interaction and ideologies. He ultimately raises the question whether missionary Christianity was an 'imperial religion'. The book draws upon numerous archival sources, colonial, missionary and Indian, in addition to printed primary sources and recent scholarship.
