Scope and content

This subseries includes a very large collection of photographic albums and prints that capture Irish Capuchin missionary activity in Zambia from the commencement of work in what was then Northern Rhodesia in 1931. The photographs can be used to reconstruct missionaries’ actions, trace the evolution of their work and their interactions with local inhabitants, and assess their impact as agents of western contact with African society. The photographic archive also offers an insight into indigenous political, social, and economic history in the areas where the Capuchin missionaries were active.
