Christianity in India was perhaps introduced by St. Thomas the Apostle. Several studies are undertaken by different persons in this regard. Christianity in Mysore was initiated by the Dominicans, but Fr. Leonardo is the founder of Mysore Mission in 1648. Jesuits were succeeded by MEP missionaries, beginning from Abbe Dubois, who reached Srirangapatana on 13-12-1799. He and other Missionaries of MEP Society, worked selflessly not only to spread Christianity but adapting local culture in order to introduce changes in the society. This article gives the highlights of their manifold activities.
