Religious Tract Society 1841

This file contains 95 tracts published by various American Ceylon Mission-affiliated presses in Jaffna between 1841 and 1891. The tracts range from four to over 30 pages, and discuss various topics including caste, Catholicism, Christian morality, Hinduism, jewelry, motherhood, etc. Several are direct translations of ninteenth-century American English-language tracts into Tamil. Others are original compositions by the missionaries and affiliated individuals such as Tanjore Christian poet Vedanayagam Sastriyar (1774-1864). The vast majority of the tracts are in Tamil, with both English and Tamil titles.
