Undoubtedly, the editor of this catalogue, which deals with special questions emerging from the 300 year history of the Francke-Foundation in Halle is one of those German researchers who have introduced secular historians to the publications and unpublished sources of Christian mission societies. She has thereby helped to establish the discipline of mission history, with its special methodology, in the broader scientific community. The Danish-Halle Mission, also called the Tranquebar Mission after its principal location in India, was strictly speaking a Danish-English-Halle Mission. This was the first organised Protestant Mission and it included the Lutheran Mission, which was initiated and guided by the Danish Monarchy and situated on the territory of the Danish trading post around Tranquebar.
