Description (deu)

Das Buch stellt deutschsprachige katholische Missionarinnen, die seit 1945 in Südafrika tätig waren, in den Mittelpunkt. Entlang der drei Kapitel Herkunftsraum, Klosterraum und Missionsraum werden die Lebensgeschichten der Frauen als Erzählungen eines „regulierten Abenteuers“ interpretiert. Das daraus entstehende Gruppenporträt gibt Einblicke in Motivationen, Alltag und Erfahrungen einer letzten Generation von Missionarinnen.
