Today, the majority of the world's Christian population lives in the Global South. Knowledge of their history is therefore indispensable. This textbook offers a compact and vivid overview of the history of Christianity in Asia, Africa and Latin America since 1450, focussing on diversity and interdependence, local actors and global effects. Maps, illustrations and numerous photos as well as continuous references to easily accessible source texts support the reader's own reading and its use in various forms of academic teaching.
Culture, Diplomacy and Interactions
Series Editor:
The era of globalization has witnessed both increased activities across borders and interactions between nations, especially between the East and the West. East and West: Culture, Diplomacy and Interactions aims to trace and investigate multiple-dimensional interactions between the East and the West from the Age of Sail to the Modern Era, culturally, socially, economically and diplomatically, with a focus on maritime history via and centered on port cities such as Macao, Goa, Melaka, Nagasaki in the East and their counterparts such as Lisbon, Seville, Amsterdam, London in the West. The series examines matters about empires, oceans, and human connections through changes in material lives and cultural politics, and analyzes the impact of the flow of cultural materials across oceans, such as artifacts, arts, goods, foods, books, knowledge, beliefs, etc., on port cities and urbanization. Particularly, it will provide readers with a new maritime vision of the East and Southeast Asian history of connections at the eastern end of the Maritime Silk Road, including the ports of East Indian Ocean and South China Sea: places from Nagasaki to Xiamen/Macao, from Singapore to Shanghai, from Hong Kong to Melbourne, etc. In doing so, it will unfold the process of formation and transformation of networks and fluxing space, generated or altered by trade, migrations, diplomacies, regional conglomerations, etc., illustrate the glocolization of religions, examine the relationship of culture/tradition and diplomatic strategy, and demonstrate the causes to miscommunication, misunderstanding, conflicts and confrontations between nations as well as appropriate reading, understanding and interpreting of each other.

East and West will include studies in such disciplines and area studies as maritime history, missionary history, intellectual history, international relations, arts, architecture, music, religious studies, and cultural studies. This series will feature monographs and edited volumes as well as translated works. It will be of interest to academics as well as general readers, including historians, artists, architects, diplomats, politicians, journalists, travelers, religious groups, businessmen, lawyers, among other groups.

The Sir Henry Wellcome Asian Series was established in 1995 in order to make available fine editions of the medical and scientific classics of Asia. The primary aim is to publish texts in their original languages, such as Chinese, Arabic, and Sanskrit. The Series also publishes translations of such editions into English, French or German. Additionally, the Series includes works that cover philological, biographical and bibliographical aspects of the field, and other works that promote knowledge of the textual basis of the subject, covering all periods up to modernity.
It is the view of the editors of the Series that for progress in understanding the history of Asian medicine and the allied sciences it is necessary to have access to critical editions of the surviving manuscripts and pre-modern books, in their original languages. Without such a firm textual basis, historical scholarship is built on an unsure foundation. The Series exists to provide readers with a reliable source of such works, and to provide text editors with a channel through which their specialized works may be published.
As well as strictly text-based publications, the series also welcomes high-quality secondary literature from a wide variety of disciplines and methodologies, including history, social sciences, and economics, provided they are solidly founded on clearly identified primary sources, and in some way illuminate such sources and their meaning for medical and scientific history. The series editors encourage scholars to embed their works in the wider context of history of science and medicine.
The Series is named after Sir Henry S. Wellcome (1853--1936) who did so much in his lifetime, and afterwards through the Trust that bears his name, to support and stimulate the study of the history of medicine. The series is supported by the Wellcome Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, London, and the Institut für Geschichte der Medizin, Munich.

(continuation of Studies in South Asian Culture)
The Brill book series Studies in Asian Art and Archaeology (SAAA) focuses on the visual and material cultures of Asia, including art history, archaeology, architecture, and (visual) anthropology (prehistoric, ancient and modern periods). The series welcomes monographs on substantial subjects, edited volumes and thematic collections, including studies with an interdisciplinary approach, handbooks, text editions, and translations. It welcomes scholary works in English, French and German, but also considers manuscripts in other languages.

The book series was founded in 1969 by Dr Johanna E. van Lohuizen-de Leeuw, a Dutch archaeologist and art historian specializing in South and South-East Asia under the name Studies in South Asian Culture. Until his passing in 2019 the series was edited by Dr Jan Fontein, Asian art scholar and former museum director of Fine Arts, Boston.
