Description

The Far East (July 1931). The Far East was the publication of the Maynooth Mission to China (initiated 1916). Unlike their Jesuit predecessors, the Columban missionaries were not trained in languages or
culture and tended to see Buddhism and other Chinese religions as “idolatry” and “paganism”. Like other missionary publications of the period, The Far East highlighted this as well as the exotic aspects of China in the interests of securing readers and donations back home. Children were a particular target audience and sometimes sold such periodicals door-to-door.
