The World Missionary Conference, Edinburgh 1910: sifting history from myth

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The World Missionary Conference, held in Edinburgh in June 1910, will be widely celebrated this year as a milestone in both ecumenical and missionary history. This article seeks to delineate more precisely in what respects the conference did mark a new departure. Whilst some of the claims made for its significance are inaccurate, it remains the case that participants in the event returned home captivated by a more expansive vision than was allowed for in the conference’s original terms of reference.
