Chapter Summary

When placed next to Bingmark, Otto Öberg, one of Bingmark's companions, seems to be the very opposite; as this chapter demonstrates, these two activists displayed two different ideals of missionary work. In this respect Öberg appears to be more in line with what is commonly believed about faith mission men, but, as we are about to see, these two men had also much in common. This chapter comes closer to the mundane world of this missionary company. Its empirical foundation consists of the diaries Otto Öberg kept, with only minor periods of silence, from his departure from Sweden in 1896 until his death in 1917. The chapter reveals the contours of an every-day world, not easily perceived in other sources, and thereby also outlining the basic grid which supported the masculinity of all of these men.

Keywords: Bingmark's companions; masculinity; Otto Öberg
