Journale asiatischer und afrikanischer Christen um 1900 und die Entstehung einer transregionalen indigen-christlichen Öffentlichkeit / Journals of Asian and African Christians Around 1900 and the Making of a Transregional Indigenous-Christian Public Sphere
edited by Klaus Koschorke, Adrian Hermann, Frieder Ludwig and Ciprian Burlacioiu
English summary: At the end of the 19th century, indigenous Christian elites in Asia and Africa increasingly began to articulate their own views in the colonial public sphere of their respective countries. They founded their own journals, criticized serious shortcomings in the colonial society and the missionary churches, were engaged in various social and political movements, and developed non-missionary interpretations of Christianity. The book presents the cumulative results of a research project which focuses on a comparative analysis of indigenous-Christian journals as a type of source material for the history of world Christianity that until now has been mostly neglected. A study of these journals provides unique new insights into processes of religious emancipation in Asia and Africa at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century.

German description: Gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts begannen indigen-christliche Eliten in Asien und Afrika, sich stärker in der kolonialen Öffentlichkeit ihrer Länder zu artikulieren. Sie gründeten ihre eigenen Journale, kritisierten Missstände in Gesellschaft und Missionskirchen, beteiligten sich an sozialen Bewegungen und entwickelten eine nicht-missionarische Sicht auf das Christentum. Der Sammelband stellt die Ergebnisse eines Forschungsprojektes dar, das der Analyse indigen-christlicher Journale als eines bislang weitestgehend vernachlässigten Quellenkorpus gewidmet ist und singuläre neue Einsichten in religiöse Emanzipationsprozesse in Asien und Afrika um die Wende vom 19. zum 20. Jahrhundert erlaubt.
