Missionaries Of Republicanism

by John C. Pinheiro, Missionaries Of Republicanism Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Missionaries Of Republicanism books, Winner of the Fr. Paul J. Foik Award from the Texas Catholic Historical Society The term "Manifest Destiny" has traditionally been linked to U.S. westward expansion in the nineteenth century, the desire to spread republican government, and racialist theories like Anglo-Saxonism. Yet few people realize the degree to which Manifest Destiny and American republicanism relied on a deeply anti-Catholic civil-religious discourse. John C. Pinheiro traces the rise to prominence of this discourse, beginning in the 1820s and culminating in the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848. Pinheiro begins with social reformer and Protestant evangelist Lyman Beecher, who was largely responsible for synthesizing seemingly unrelated strands of religious, patriotic, expansionist, and political sentiment into one universally understood argument about the future of the United States. When the overwhelmingly Protestant United States went to war with Catholic Mexico, this "Beecherite Synthesis" provided Americans with the most important means of defining their own identity, understanding Mexicans, and interpreting the larger meaning of the war. Anti-Catholic rhetoric constituted an integral piece of nearly every major argument for or against the war and was so universally accepted that recruiters, politicians, diplomats, journalists, soldiers, evangelical activists, abolitionists, and pacifists used it. It was also, Pinheiro shows, the primary tool used by American soldiers to interpret Mexico's culture. All this activity in turn reshaped the anti-Catholic movement. Preachers could now use caricatures of Mexicans to illustrate Roman Catholic depravity and nativists could point to Mexico as a warning about what America would be like if dominated by Catholics. Missionaries of Republicanism provides a critical new perspective on Manifest Destiny, American republicanism, anti-Catholicism, and Mexican-American relations in the nineteenth century.

An Empire Divided

by J.P. Daughton, An Empire Divided Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download An Empire Divided books, Between 1880 and 1914, tens of thousands of men and women left France for distant religious missions, driven by the desire to spread the word of Jesus Christ, combat Satan, and convert the world's pagans to Catholicism. But they were not the only ones with eyes fixed on foreign shores. Just as the Catholic missionary movement reached its apex, the young, staunchly secular Third Republic launched the most aggressive campaign of colonial expansion in French history. Missionaries and republicans abroad knew they had much to gain from working together, but their starkly different motivations regularly led them to view one another with resentment, distrust, and even fear. In An Empire Divided, J.P. Daughton tells the story of how troubled relations between Catholic missionaries and a host of republican critics shaped colonial policies, Catholic perspectives, and domestic French politics in the tumultuous decades before the First World War. With case studies on Indochina, Polynesia, and Madagascar, An Empire Divided--the first book to examine the role of religious missionaries in shaping French colonialism--challenges the long-held view that French colonizing and "civilizing" goals were shaped by a distinctly secular republican ideology built on Enlightenment ideals. By exploring the experiences of Catholic missionaries, one of the largest groups of French men and women working abroad, Daughton argues that colonial policies were regularly wrought in the fires of religious discord--discord that indigenous communities exploited in responding to colonial rule. After decades of conflict, Catholics and republicans in the empire ultimately buried many of their disagreements by embracing a notion of French civilization that awkwardly melded both Catholic and republican ideals. But their entente came at a price, with both sides compromising long-held and much-cherished traditions for the benefit of establishing and maintaining authority. Focusing on the much-neglected intersection of politics, religion, and imperialism, Daughton offers a new understanding of both the nature of French culture and politics at the fin de siecle, as well as the power of the colonial experience to reshape European's most profound beliefs.

From The Pages Of Three Ladies Microform Canadian Women Missionaries In Republican China

by Deborah Shulman, From The Pages Of Three Ladies Microform Canadian Women Missionaries In Republican China Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download From The Pages Of Three Ladies Microform Canadian Women Missionaries In Republican China books, This thesis focuses on three courageous Canadian women who served as United Church of Canada missionaries in China in the first half of the 20th century. Drawing principally on their diaries and letters, the thesis examines the China experiences and impressions of Margaret Helen Brown (1887-1978) who spent 39 years in China as an educator and editor, primarily in Henan and Shanghai; Mary Letitia Lamb (1879-1960) who spent 20 years in China as an educator and evangelist, primarily in Sichuan; and Victoria Cheung (1897-1966) who spent 43 years as a medical missionary in Guangdong. Each of the women was involved in a different sector of mission work, and together the three represent the types of missionary work undertaken by Canadian Protestant women missionaries in China. The three main chapters each focus on an individual woman. The first part of each chapter provides a biographical sketch of the woman. The second and third parts bring the voice of each woman to the reader, as she describes her experiences in China and her impressions of China. The fourth part is an analytical discussion of each woman's narration.
