Many Britons travelled to Chile because were representing the interests of another group of individuals and not only their own personal projects. This was the case of the British Protestant societies that emerged in Britain since late eighteenth century and were sending agents and missionaries to different parts of the world. These societies aimed to civilise the rest of the world and were therefore embarked on what they saw as a global mission. Some of them, like the British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS) and the British and Foreign School Society (BFSS), reached South America and Chile when the struggles for the Independence were coming to an end. This chapter analyses the process of interaction and the exchange of ideas and practices between the agents of these societies who travelled to Chile in the 1820s, and the Chileans who were involved in the construction of the new state.
