This chapter focuses on Christians in India who were considered ‘Trophies of Grace’. Some Christians whose very birth and accomplishments made them so important and prominent that they can be called ‘Trophies of Grace’. A ‘Trophy of Grace’, within this context, can be defined quite arbitrarily as having possessed at least three noteworthy features: high birth and high class; conversion that was understood, at least doctrinally or theologically, as having been due to divine rather than human agency; and celebrated status, due to personal accomplishments, that stretched far and wide across the world during their own lifetimes, if not later.
