English Abstract

 

Missionaries on The Arabian Peninsula: many friends but no converts

The missionaries arriving in the Arabian Peninsula dreamt of performing «the greatest marvel of missionary work ever witnessed», but their mission became in the end «notorious for its lack of success». The story of this mission cannot however be reduced to its infamous lack of converts. Though it ended differently than the missionaries had planned, the missionaries gained many friends, and they did manage to bring Christianity back to the Peninsula. Christian presence was to some extent accepted, and when Christian labor migrant began arriving, they were, partly thanks to the missionaries, granted space to practice their faith.
