Hinduism in the roman catholic imagination between the two world wars


Beltramini, Enrico (2016). Hinduism in the roman catholic imagination between the two world wars. Asiatische Studien / Études Asiatiques, 70(2):333-345.

Abstract

This article explores the Roman Catholic intellectual milieu and the articulated perspective of theologians and missionaries on Hinduism in the period between the two World Wars. In the aftermath of World War I, the Roman Catholic Church elaborated a vision of Christian missions that would continue the civilization of India when the political power of Western nations vanishes. In this context, the new science of missiology absorbed the modern valorization of method in studying non-Christian religions, including Hinduism, while maintaining theological concerns about the truth of Christianity.
