Curator Iris Yau in conversation on the ‘Mission’, the reaction from some churches and Christians to both the opium trade and China.

Iris Yau (丘靜雯 FRSA FHEA) discusses Missionaries in China with Dr Debbie Challis (FRHS) and their role in the campaigning against the opium trade, the ambivalent view of the Church of England and eyewitnesses to the trade on opium and how it was reported in missionary societies. It will include discussion of a collection of lantern slides in the Portico’s collection.
