A project of the Center for Global Christianity and Missions at Boston University, The China Historical Christian Database (CHCD) quantifies and visualizes the place of Christianity in modern China (1550-1950).
These primary sources are a hugely important resource for the study of missionary work, educational work, medical work, evangelism, political conflict, and the emergence of indigenous churches. The collections are truly global in scope, with Africa, East and South Asia, Australasia and the Pacific, and the Americas all well-represented. The sources will be of interest to scholars in a range of fields, from missiology to colonial history and anthropology.
This database, a project of the Overseas Ministries Study Center and International Bulletin of Missionary Research, aimed to record all English-language doctoral dissertations on missions and on Christianity outside the West, without regard to country of origin and presented since 1894. The project was discontinued after 2019. There are over 6200 dissertations listed in the database, with full bibliographical details and indexing.
The World Christian Encyclopedia, now in its 3rd edition, documents the changing status of World Christianity over the past 120 years from historical and social scientific perspectives. It records the continued shift of Christianity to the Global South and contains estimates for religious and nonreligious affiliation in every country of the world, including detail on Christianity to the denominational level. This reference work features comprehensive descriptions of all Christian traditions, including current information on the uniqueness of Christian experiences around the world.
