Example text

There was little interest in the proposal in Denmark, but the king's court chaplain Dr Liitkens, who was German, warmly supported it; and, since no Danes came forward to offer themselves for missionary service, Dr Liitkens turned to Germany. Pious friends in Berlin pointed him to two young men, Henry Pliitschau and Bartholomew Ziegenbalg, both of whom had studied under the godly Dr Lange in Berlin. Both had a connection also with the University of Halle, where Professor A. H. Francke (1663-1727) had entered on the career which led him, following in the steps of Philipp Jakob Spener (1635-1705), to the position of leading pietist in Germany.

There was little interest in the proposal in Denmark, but the king's court chaplain Dr Liitkens, who was German, warmly supported it; and, since no Danes came forward to offer themselves for missionary service, Dr Liitkens turned to Germany.

11 The possession of these books may at the time have seemed to Ziegenbalg a blessing; it may be doubted whether in the long run these borrowings from Roman Catholic usage were of advantage to the Lutheran churches. Robert Nobili 12 had relied heavily on Sanskrit for his rendering of Christian terms, and had thus saddled the churches in India with a number of artificial constructs as a result of which the Christian faith came to sound unduly foreign in the ears of those to whom these terms were unfamiliar.
