The documents made available here arose from the work of the earliest German and Swiss missionaries of the Basel Mission as they encountered land and people of what is now Northern Karnataka. They were based in Dharwad, Hubli, Gadag-Betgeri and Guledgudd and travelled energetically in these districts, but also made more extensive journeys in an area that stretched as far as Shorapur and Gulbarga. They spoke Kannada, and of particular interest are the discussions they recorded with members of many religious groups, especially Lingayats, the group known as the Kalagnanas, and the followers of the Guru Nudi.
