Welcome to the China Mission History Digital Archive

While the principal goal of the archive is to provide scholarly and general access to visual images related to Christian missionary history in China, the collection also hosts a substantial library of Western and Chinese books intended to support research on the historical context in which the rare photographs were produced. In addition to the photograph and book collection, the China Mission History repository holds original materials and reproductions relevant mainly to the history of Roman Catholic missionary activities in China from the late-imperial era to the present. Imagined and initiated by Professor Anthony E. Clark, this collection of materials encourages continued interest and research on the significant role missionary history in China has had upon the complex past of Sino-Western cultural exchange.
