Tranquebar Mission and Protestant Missionary Beginnings in India

Fr. Dr. Thomson Robi

Abstract: The 16th century Reformation Movement had to infuse a new life in the field of missions. Many western countries tried to send missionaries to India. It was not just because of increasing activities oversea, but also had especially because of the changing spiritual climate in Europe itself that Protestant mission took on a very different look in the 18th century. The Protestant Missionary beginning in India and the Tranquebar Mission is synonymous as the first Protestant Mission began in Tranquebar and took its shape. There were Roman Catholics who already existed in India, but in the 18th century with the arrival of the two Protestant Missionaries in Tranquebar, did the world witness the beginning of the real mission work in the Indian soil. The Mission Work started during the Danish Settlement in Tranquebar, conceived by the Danish King Frederick IV of Denmark who sends two German missionaries. These two pious and devoted missionaries began their work at Tranquebar which was extended with the arrival of more Protestant missionaries. This paper deals with the Beginning of the Protestant mission, the Tranquebar Mission and the important contribution of the Tranquebar Mission to the Indian society.
