“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.
