Description The article deals with European perspectives on Indian Christianity. The author argues that Indian Christianity has been often studied as changed or even distorted version of (western) Christianity, without respect to the actual history and development of this tradition in India. It is argued that Indian Christianity (or rather Christianities) should be studied within Indian context and not regarded only as a product of colonial period.
