This chapter explores European Christians' attempts to control and exercise dominion over Indian Christians from the 19th century and onwards. It argues that at each and every stage of development in missionary expansions during the 19th century, whether imperial or national, from the time of Christian Friedrich Schwartz down to such missionaries as Allen Hume, Verrier Elwin, Charles F. Andrews, Edward Thompson, and Amy Carmichael, there were prominent anti-imperial, pro-nationalist missionaries, many of whom also remained isolated as marginalized mavericks. All missionaries had to confront conflicts between universalistic ideals of their faith and more immediate political realities, whether these were imperial or national in character.
