ABSTRACT

In the history of Assam and Assamese literature, the period of 19th century was specifically significant one. From the beginning of that century Assam experienced political, sociological and economical diminution and all of these situations contributed towards creation of another diminution called intellectual diminution. The contribution of Christian Missionaries towards the development of Assamese language and literature is noteworthy. The arrival of American Baptist Missionaries in Assam was not accidental or sudden happening; rather it was well planned by the colonial government as per their policies. Whatever the background, but their contributions towards the Assamese literature and language and as well as Assamese society was not forgettable not only then but today also. This paper will make significant contributions to the existing literature by analyzing contributions of Missionaries in the field of Assamese literature which is very significant.
