Maps and Charts Documenting the Expansion of Christianity


Images of 300 historical maps and charts documenting the expansion of Christianity. Selected from historical atlases, histories of Christianity, and maps in the Yale University Map Collection, these maps and charts provide visual support for the teaching of church and mission history, and Biblical studies. The maps were published primarily in the 19th and early 20th centuries and illustrate the expansion of Christianity from the era of the early Church, through the height of the Western missionary movement, to the establishment of Christian churches throughout the world. The expansion of both Protestant and Catholic churches is documented. Geographical areas covered include Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America, and Oceania. Included among the sources from which materials were digitized is the 1922 work
