James Ford Lecture 5: Enslavement
The most persistent conundrum of early modern Protestant missions was converting the enslaved – which, it was assumed, meant working with and through the slave system. Examining the failure of a range of impractical, idealistic and grimly compromised attempted solutions to the problem, this lecture will argue that enslavement was the principal rock on which early Protestant missionary projects foundered.
