Chapter Summary

This chapter traces the scholarly connections between Paul Vial, Alfred Liétard, and François Marie Savina. At the periphery of Upper Tonkin in the Mainland Southeast Asian massif, lies the southwestern Chinese province of Yunnan, where millions of representatives of the same or closely related highland societies as in northern French Indochina dwell. Following an ancient missionary establishment in neighbouring Sichuan, Yunnan, which was made a vicariate in 1696 but only obtained its administrative autonomy in 1843, saw Catholic missions being set up by the Société des Missions Étrangères de Paris throughout the 19th century.

Keywords: Alfred Liétard; Catholic missions; François Marie Savina; Paul Vial; Upper Tonkin; Yunnan
