Rhodes University has Free Trial Access to Church Missionary Society Periodicals until 18 June 2018.
Church Missionary Society Periodicals features publications from the
- Church Missionary Society (CMS),
- South American Missionary Society and the
- Church of England Zenana Missionary Society (CEZMS) between 1804 and 2009.
Forming a prominent feature of British religious philanthropy from the late eighteenth century onwards, missionary societies served as employer and community to missionaries far from home. Service came with considerable sacrifice and sometimes high risk, so society publications became crucial for keeping those at home in touch with the activities of the society and its individuals, as well as promoting and funding its work.
