Carey (1761-1834), a key figure in the nineteenth-century Protestant missionary movement and founding member of the Baptist Missionary Society, lived and worked as a missionary in India from 1793 till his death 41 years later. The biography is based on Carey\'s unpublished letters, personal papers, missionary records and the recollections of Carey\'s friends and colleagues in India. It focuses on Carey\'s educational work; his involvement in India\'s agriculture; the mission centres he established throughout India; and his translations of the Bible into Sanskrit, Bengali and many other Indian languages. Smith, a popular Victorian biographer and an expert on India and missionary activity there, paints a vibrant picture of Carey and his extraordinary life. The biography remains a key source for the nineteenth-century Protestant mission movement and for the work of one of its key figures.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/10461323681<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/10461323681#Series\/cambridge_library_collection_south_asian_history<\/a>> ; # Cambridge library collection.
