Final Answer

With the discovery of new trading routes, colonialism and the missionary explorers had a powerful effect on bringing new knowledge to Europe about Africa and Asia. With the discovery of precious metals such as diamonds and gold, a new impetus gathered for both evangelizing and the colonizing of the New World. A good example of this "marriage" between trade and religion can be found in this brief account of the history of Christianity in Bangladesh.
