The Yale-Edinburgh Group on the History of the Missionary Movement and World Christianity is an informal group of scholars, which was formed to facilitate discussion and exchange of information about historical aspects of the missionary movement and the development of world Christianity, with special emphasis on the sources for documentation. It is a forum where viewpoints from the fields of political, social, diplomatic, and religious history can converge to reassess the significance of the missionary movement and its worldwide effects.
