This article explores the missionary sermons of the eighteenth century, addressing the question of why the British felt the need to evangelize the so-called heathens. It considers the missionary methods and then discusses the various sermons that were delivered by missionaries in Africa, India, and China. These sermons reflect the ways in which mid-to-late-Victorian Protestant beliefs changed over time.
