This chapter explores three cases—Tahiti, the Loyalty Islands, and Madagascar—in order to illustrate how Protestants from the Société des Missions Évangéliques de Paris (or Paris Mission) negotiated working in colonies alongside French Catholics. In each situation, the Paris Mission defended a missionary internationalism against a colonial nationalism, which both the French state and Catholic missionaries sought to impose by associating Protestantism with allegiance to the British Empire. The Paris Mission viewed this association of politics and religion as a trap meant to subordinate apostolic work to a political project.
