NEELE, Adriaan C.. Theological education of nineteenth-century French Missionaries: an appropriation of the Catholicity of Classical Christian Theology. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2013, vol.39, n.2, pp.149-178. ISSN 2412-4265.
The limited research on the theological education of nineteenth-century Christian missionaries, including those of the Société des Missions Evangéliques chez les peuples non-chrétiens á Paris (hereafter PEMS), is of particular interest considering the surviving, significant manuscript collections related to the missionaries - their training and teaching in Paris, France and Morija, Lesotho. This article presents the theological trajectories and historical-theological context of the PEMS missionaries together with an in-depth analysis of a recently discovered notebook of Adolphe Mabille (1836-1894); and concludes with preliminary observations of the theological education of these missionaries.
