A public theological discourse of how the English-British empire was to be understood was framed by the Anglican Society for Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts in its original missionary engagement with the North American colonies in the 18th century. In its public sermons and missionary reports it constructed identities for the inhabitants of the empire, colonized and colonizers, and for the English themselves. It did so in partnership with the state, though this partnership was seen to be unsatisfactory in important dimensions.
