The Chota Nagpur Tenancy Acts and the Catholic Co-operatives 1893-1928

di Peter Tete

Documenta Missionalia 18

1982, pp. 216

After Father Constant Lievens, John Baptist Hoffmann (1857-1928) was one of the most prominent Jesuit missionaries in the Mission of Chota Nagpur, in North India, from 1893 to 1915. This book has been undertaken in order to present as complete a picture as possible and to highlight the activities of Father Hoffmann. He believed that Catholic missionary work in Chota Nagpur had to go hand in hand with a struggle for social justice and for the uplift of the working people, their families and communities. His work also shows the validity of the social teaching of the Chirch for missionaries as restated by Vatican Council II. The whole work can be divided into four main parts. The first deals with the socio-political, religious and economic conditions of Chota Nagpuur. The second treats of the active missionary work of Hoffmann in the Munda country at Sarwada.
