The connection between religion and empire in England goes back to at least the 16th century. While missions and religion may not have been a primary motivation for English venturing overseas in the 16th and 17th centuries, nevertheless, when they did so, the English ensured their religion went with them. The annual sermons and the published extracts of the Anglican missionaries attached to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel and, later, the Church Missionary Society from 1701 until the 1840s, allow investigation into the formation, maintenance, and adaptation of an Anglican discourse of the British Empire from the beginning of the 18th century to the mid-19th century.
