Protestant and Catholic missionaries entered Africa before, during or after the colonial conquest of an area. The entire Christian missionary movement took place within a colonial context. The relationship between colonial government and Christian mission was regulated in the 1885 Treaty of Berlin and further clarified in the 1919 Treaty of St Germain. In these treaties freedom of religion and protection of the missionaries were guaranteed. Within these broad outlines the colonial government and the Christian mission had to develop their mutual relationship. The Author investigates the attitudes of Dutch Catholic Missionaries in East Africa to the colonial state and society as well as its inhabitants. He explains the attitude of Christian missionaries to colonialism giving relevant particulars of Dutch missionaries that are important.
