Chapter Summary

Until the beginning of the twentieth century, the great island of Sulawesi (Celebes), with an area of 186,000 km2, was touched by Western influences only at its southern and northern extremities: the city of Makassar and the surrounding area, and the Minahasa on the northern tip of the island. After the Dutch Missionary Society (NZG) had surrendered its successful mission in the Minahasa to the Protestant Church, its sphere of activity was restricted to East Java, where the work among the Muslim population advanced with difficulty. The missionfield of the NZG did not include the whole of Central Sulawesi. In 1894 the Dutch branch of the Salvation Army had sent two officers to Central Java, where they were active in social and medical work. The early history of Protestant Christianity in Southwest Sulawesi does not differ much from that in Torajaland and in the eastern part of the island.
