Description
In 1797—barely 25 years after Captain Cook's Pacific voyages—the London Missionary Society sent its first representatives to the South Seas. Although their express goal was to spread the Gospel and eradicate heathen practices, these missionaries actually preserved Polynesian religious culture by documenting their beliefs and sending many of the islanders' "exotic" artifacts back to Britain for exhibition. The 300 color and black and white reproductions in this book include photographs of feathered, spear-shaped carvings of deities; period renderings of these distant locales; and facsimiles of religious tracts that double as pioneering works of ethnography.
