Musée cantonal d'archéologie et d'histoire

French-speaking Swiss missionary work in southern Africa (1870-1975)

An exhibition by the Musée cantonal d'archéologie et d'histoire. Protestant evangelisation was booming in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The missionaries brought back a number of objects, photographs, films and writings that are revealed in the exhibition, which is structured around the original comic strip Capitão.
