Interactive Maps

The Interactive Map allows you to explore the Church Missionary Society periodicals geographically, narrowing your searches by region and country. You can select countries visually with the help of the animated globe, or choose them from the accompanying list.

To explore the globe, use your mouse to drag and spin it and select the countries you are interested in. You can select multiple countries and regions at a time.

The results list will include all documents which have been indexed as containing significant content pertaining to the country or countries selected. As the periodicals range from the 1800s to the modern day, we have recognised that many of the entries will refer to geographic areas by former names and older boundaries. This has been taken into account and documents relating to old names and boundaries will be included in results for the modern geographical region.
