Lepanto and Beyond

Images of Religious Alterity from Genoa and the Christian Mediterranean
Edited by Laura Stagno and Borja Franco Llopis

The varied storytelling and the many visual representations that contributed to shape the perception of the battle in Christian Europe are the focus of this book. In broader terms, Lepanto and Beyond also sheds light on the construction of religious alterity in the early modern Mediterranean.

Missionary Education

Historical Approaches and Global Perspectives
Edited by Kim Christiaens, Idesbald Goddeeris, and Pieter Verstraete

Missionaries have been subject to academic and societal debate. Some scholars highlight their contribution to the spread of modernity and development among local societies, whereas others question their motives and emphasise their inseparable connection with colonialism. In this volume, fifteen authors – from both Europe and the Global South – address these often polemical positions by focusing on education, one of the most prominent fields in which missionaries have been active.
