It’s appropriate during the 500th anniversary of protestant Christianity to release to universities and colleges, seminaries and churches the documentary, BEYOND EMPIRES as a streaming or downloadable file on Vimeo’s VoD service.
With Dr Daniel Jeyaraj in Tranquebar during filming, August 2010
BEYOND EMPIRES tells the story of a 23 year old German, sent by the Danish King to his trading port of Tranquebar on the south east coast of India in 1706. He died age 36 under the persecution of the Danish trading company and an official on the King’s mission board. True. Yet, the Indian federal government and state of Tamil Nadu promulgated a week of celebrating his life in July of 2006 – the 300th anniversary of his arrival in India. Even releasing a postage stamp in his honour.
Why would India regard the first protestant missionary to their shores as a cultural hero? And why is his name mostly erased from western memory.
