Abstract

The activities of European missionaries of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, who penetrated Asia under protection afforded by the Pax Mongolica, provide a case history which illustrates the central role played by the silk route in facilitating cross-cultural contact. Using the accounts of the missionaries themselves, as well as correspondence and reports concerning their activities, this essay focuses on the mission in Chaghatai Khanate, a key part of the Mongol Empire, but one relatively neglected in histories of the Mongol world and of evangelizing.
