This chapter focuses on the evangelical and missionary association of the heathen classes at home with the heathen races that populated Britain's colonial empire at the turn of the nineteenth century, investigating when and why evangelical ministers began to view the laboring poor as comparable to the Empire's heathen races. It also examines what the heathens abroad and heathens at home have in common in the minds of contemporary evangelicals.

Keywords:   heathen classes, heathen races, evangelical ministers, Britain, colonial empire, laboring poor
