This thesis shows that Anglican theological training for Maori in the years from 1883 to 1921 was in te reo Maori at Te Rau College, Gisborne, and surveys, in particular, the text books used, analysing what those text book indicators show about Maori theological education. This is seen in the context of theological training for Maori prior to the establishment of the college, the later period when English language instruction was also offered, and the pressures that led to the college’s closure.
