Christentum und afrikanische Kultur

Konservative deutsche Missionare in Tanzania 1900 bis 1940

by Klaus Fiedler

The missionaries have often been accused of having destroyed African cultures, be it deliberately or because they did not understand. The author draws a very different picture in his study of a number of German missionaries in various parts of Tanzania, who had a high appreciation of African culture. He argues that acceptance of in-culturation attempts do not depend on race but on role, and the same applies to both Black and White. (GERMAN)
