Archival history

The world-famous archive of the Basel Mission and Mission 21 is open to the public for research purposes. Researchers from fields such as history, ethnology, anthropology, mission sciences, religious sciences, geography, economics or linguistics will find archival documents (files, historical images and maps) from the early 19th century onwards. In addition, there are more recent archival records from other countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, in which Mission 21 and its supporting associations are involved, as well as the archive of the Missions Action Society.( "Source )
