Abstract

The article attempts to reconstruct the history of women within the Basel Mission in India with special reference to the personal history of Hermann Moegling. Alongside the illustrations of Pauline Moegling, Lakshmi Kaundinya, Marie Reinhardt, Salome Almanda and Anna Haller different questions are raised regarding the place and role of women in the early Basel Mission. The article discusses the question as to whether conversion and Mission were liberating and transforming influences on indigenous women.
