Distant souls : global religion and the Jesuit Missions of Germany, Mexico, and China, 1595-1705 / by Luke Sean Clossey.
Thesis (Ph. D., History)--University of California, Berkeley, Spring 2004.
Includes bibliographical references (leaves 505-559).

“This dissertation suggests the new knowledge to be won by approaching the Jesuit missions as a macrohistorical phenomenon. Its first half, using the concept of local religion as a foil, develops the idea of "global religion" and suggests why the Jesuits' mentality can only be understood in a world-spanning context. Global religion also served to give legitimacy to a developing world church, to fuel (and to be fueled by) the Jesuit world missionary project.”—OCLC note.
