Missionary-led expansionism inadvertently helped birth the comparative study of religion. The study of mission as an aspect of religion traces back to Max Müller’s use of the categories of Missionary and Non-Missionary religions to describe “the very heart-blood in every system of human faith.” While missiology is often studied as a sub-discipline of Christian theology, this presentation proposes that mission can be researched within an interreligious framework. The presenter will introduce the concept of “comparative missiology” as well as inviting feedback on a forthcoming book.
