History of Christian mission and their educational contributions in India - (15th -19th century): An overview


Author(s): Mulehu Khesoh

Abstract:
The presence of Christianity in India is aged almost two thousand years commencing from the arrival of St. Thomas, one of the Apostles of Jesus Christ and martyred in 72 A.D. in Chinnamalai, Mylapore Chennai. Since then Christianity spreads its roots in different parts of the country mainly in south India. Commenting on the contributions made by Christians Dr. Rajendra Prasad said on December 18, 1955, “Remember, St. Thomas came to India when many of the countries of Europe had not yet become Christians, and so those Indians who trace their Christianity to him have a long history and a higher ancestry than that of Christians of many of European countries. And it is really a matter of pride to us that it so happened”. However, the early history of the Christian community is fables and traditions and only a few records exist. Their contributions are outstanding in the field of education and in preserving the culture of the people. They occupied a significant place to reach the country far through their trade and commerce.
