This paper arose out of an inter-area and thematic course on religion and society in the University of Sydney, to which Dr L. Olson and Dr J. O. Ward contributed a medieval perspective. We benefited from their stimulating discussions on the theme of missions and ‘conversion’. An earlier version was read at the Australian Historical Association Conference, University of Sydney, February 1988. We are greatful for the suggestions made by members of that Conference, especially Dr N. Etherington and Associate Professor C.C. Saunders. Deryck Schreuder is Challis Professor of History, University of Sydney; Geoffrey Oddie is Senior Lecturer in History, University of Sydney.
