The official reason was to propagate the Christian faith. In that vein, settlers were brought over to settle the land and missionaries to convert the native peoples. But, soon after, the trading of furs became a good reason to establish forts at the various key river junctions and the like throughout the Great Lakes and midwest. These too were used by missionaries. Sometimes there were conflicts between the missionaries and the traders regrding the sale of alcohol.


Byzantine missionaries preached Orthodox Christianity outside their empire. The two most important Byzantine missionaries were Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius. They were two brothers who were missionaries among the Slavs. They preached in Great Moravia (a West Slavic state, which at the time was the most powerful state in central Europe) and Pannonia (eastern Austria and western Hungary) in the 9th century. They greatly influenced all Slavs and were given the title of "Apostles to the Slavs". They created the Glagolitic alphabet, the first Slavic alphabet, and developed Old Church Slavonic, the first Slavic literary language which standardised the Slavonic language and which they used to translate the bible and other Greek ecclesiastical texts. They created the foundations for the Christianisation of the Slavic peoples. In the Orthodox Church they are saints and have the title of "equal-to-apostles."

Greco-Roman values did not spread beyond the Roman Empire except some peoples who became Romanised through close contact with the Romans. Many factors led to the spread of Certainty throughout Europe over a period of over 900 years. Christian values were first spread around the Roman Empire, including its European parts, by preachers, missionary, clergymen and theologians. It was first spread in Europe beyond the Roman Empire by preachers and missionaries. In the first centuries AD there were many types of doctrines. Arian missionaries spread Arian Christianity to the Germanic peoples in Eastern and central Europe who would later invade the western part of the Roman Empire. After they invaded this part of the empire and settled there, they converted to Catholicism. The conversion of the Franks, who conquered Gaul, in the Roman Empire, led to the spread of Christianity to their lands in Holland and central Germany. In the late 8th century, Charlemagne, the king of the Franks conquered northern Germany and sent missionaries there to convert people. The Christianisation of Ireland was spearheaded by St Patrick, a Romano-British missionary. England was Christianized by Irish missionaries and by Augustine of Canterbury who was sent to England by the pope to convert the king of Kent. In Eastern Europe, Boris I a tsar of the First Bulgarian empire converted to Orthodox Christianity in n 864. Saints Cyril and Methodius, two Greek brothers, devised the Glagolitic alphabet, the first alphabet to be used for Slavonic manuscripts and developed Church Slavonic, a liturgical language. Thus, they laid the foundation for the spread of Orthodox Christianity though Slav Eastern Europe by missionaries. In 998 Vladimir the Great, grand prince of Kiev, converted to Christianity in order to marry the sister of the Byzantine emperor and form an alliance with the Byzantines. He converted the Rus of Kiev and this propelled the Christianisation of all of Russia.


Two brother who were Byzantine Christian missionaries went to Bulgaria and developed an alphabet for the Slavonic languages (Cyrillic) so that the Slavic peoples could read the bible. This is the Cyrillic alphabeth, which was named after Cyril, one of two brothers. Other missionaries spread Christianity further in Slavic lands: in the Balkan peninsula and Ukraine. Vladimir the Great, the Grand Prince of Kiev, married the sister of the Byzantine emperor (Anna Porphyrogenita) and converted to Orthodox Christianity, the form of Christianity of the Byzantine Empire. This then led to the conversion of the whole of Russia to Orthodox Christianity

AnswerThere was a great deal of symbiosis between missionary work and imperialism. Imperialism helped the missionaries spread the gospel, sometimes at the point of a sword or by using intimidation to encourage conversion. At the same time, the missionaries often helped develop a more submissive attitude among the conquered peoples, making them easier to govern.
