Beschreibung

The book is about John Eliot and his mission to Massachusetts Bay; it analyzes the English-speaking and Algonquian-speaking communities that coalesced in the process of this missionary project. In this context, the study pays special attention to the reception of speech and text in relation to English, colonial, and praying Indian communities.
