In Focus

Missionary Portrayals of World Religions

Much of what the American and European public learned about world religions during the 19th and early 20th centuries came from writings and images supplied by missionaries working overseas. A new exhibit in the rotunda area features images, writings, and artifacts from the Divinity Library’s Day Missions Collection that provide a glimpse of how religious practices were portrayed.
