Journal 7: The Br itish East India Company and
Matteo Ricci and Jesuit Missionar ies
Key Terms
The British East India Company: was an early English joint-stock company
that was for med

Companies, the Company was granted an English Royal Charter, under the name Governor and
Company of Merchants of London Trading into the East Indies, by Elizabeth I on 31 December

religions at all and hence should easily yield to the superior message of Christianity. Matteo
Ricci entered the Society of Jesus at 19, where he distinguished himself in mathematics and
geography. After f inishing his religious training, he taught at the college until 1582 when he was
