Chapter Summary

The documentation1 of Nestorian heritage in Inner Mongolia dates back to the arrival of the first Scheut missionaries from the Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (C.I.C.M.) in Inner Mongolia. This chapter looks into the appropriation of Nestorian heritage by missionaries, foreign researchers and Chinese scholars who researched and documented Nestorian remains in Inner Mongolia. It highlights some concerns regarding the presentation of Nestorian material that is appropriated. The appropriation of the Nestorian heritage by foreign researchers consisted in the first place of a documentation of the material. The scholarly documentation of Nestorian material in Inner Mongolia was soon followed by a physical appropriation of the remains by researchers to furnish the collections of their institutes or otherwise. The main problem regarding Nestorian material included in collections frequently concerns the lack of documentation regarding provenance, environment and related issues.
