In this paper a first overview to an approach of the intercultural development of an individual self, working and living abroad is given. The main focus is set on the Franciscan mission in Mongolia and China by developing an idea of specific turning points in the modes of experiences that are part of the descriptions in itineraries, relations of journeys and stays, from Yuan Dyansty on. The basic idea is that with the founding of the order as missionary order very specific attitudes were required and developed that are strongly related to the individual personality and its ways of dealing with rules from the order, its authorities and the influence given by people and experiences abroad. Conclusions of this anachronic and diachronic development of Franciscanism are intended to become compared to ’Corporate Identities’ set in an international environment of global acting companies working in China in the culture-philosophical field.
