Chapter Summary

Borneo is, after New Guinea, the largest island of the Indo-Malayan archipelago and together with the somewhat larger Greenland these are the largest islands of the world. There were some centres of Islamic learning in the 'Malay-Islamic zone' of Kalimantan, especially in the Banjarmasin region. Protestant and Catholic missionaries very seldom addressed the Malay Muslims of the coastal regions in relation to their religion. In 1905 the Catholic mission enterprise was resumed with the arrival of the Capuchin Friars as successors to the Jesuits, who were retreating from the outer islands in the period 1903-1918 and concentrated their work on the island of Java. The influence of the Japanese period upon the history of Indonesian Christianity is oft en ambiguous. Christian and Missionary Alliance (CAMA) in West Kalimantan remained subordinated to the more prosperous Christians of the eastern regions.
