Interactive Chronology

From the earliest Christian missionary expeditions, the interactive chronology allows you to chart the interaction, conflict and impact of these religious missions on world history from the eighteenth century to the present day.

You can browse by date using the histogram at the bottom of the page or the left and right navigational arrows. To help you find what you are looking for, you can view entries specific to a range of thematic categories or geographic regions. You can also search by keyword and create a printable list of the entries most relevant to your research.

Hovering the mouse to the left or right of the chronology window will reveal navigation arrows. Alternatively you can click on a year in the histogram at the bottom to navigate to that point.
