Abstract

The Rev. James Gilmour, London Missionary Society, spent twenty years in Mongolia, but never converted any of them to Christianity. A keen observer of Mongolian society he published Among the Mongols in 1883 vividly describing their lifestyles and customs. Termed "one of the best books ever written about Mongolia" it remains in print as a lasting legacy to Gilmour's lonely toil in one of the world's most remote missionary locations. Durant les vingt années qu'il a passées en Mongolie pour la London Missionary Society, le Révérend James Gilmour n'a pas fait un seul converti au christianisme. En 1883, ce fin observateur de la société mongole publia Among the Mongols, un livre dans lequel il décrivait leur modes de vie et leurs coutumes. Considéré comme « l'un des meilleurs ouvrages jamais écrits sur la Mongolie », le livre est l'héritage tangible du parcours solitaire de Gilmour dans l'une des contrées missionnaires les plus reculées au monde.
