Week 10
What motivated the European commercial and colonial expansion in Asia in the late 15th
through the 17th centuries?
The motivations were a mixture of political, religious and economic. Politically speaking
the Asians were in general more complicated, proud of their own r ich and sophisticated
civilizations, whereas the Europeans realized early on that their development lagged
behind, so they decided to expand their ways into Asia, in order to increase their
reputation and home front. All in all, motivation to be the f irst to do better than the
counterparts that lied ahead was the real motivat ion. The Europeans just wanted to get
ahead politically and economically of course. Religiously they believed t hey could once
again spread Christianity across the South East Asia, failing to comprehend that it had
already came and left, but they felt like it was their calling to help spread and widen the
Chr istian world.
