Things brought by missionaries from mission countries were a testimony of cultural and civilizational differences, objects of scientific research, goods enabling acquisition of funds and new patrons. They were classified and valued according to new rules. They were to bear witness to the success of missions and encourage their continuation. The Missionary Exhibition held in Vatican in 1925 perfectly illustrates the scale of the missionary project of acquiring ethnographic objects. This paper presents the importance of foreign things and their agency in legitimizing missions.
