Modern African Missionaries. A reassessment of their impact in Uganda 1890s-1920s

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Using examples from Anglican missions in the Great Lakes region of Africa this article explores the roles of African Protestant missionaries. It argues that many committed African Christians understood themselves to be missionaries and examines the nature of their missionary activity. Those who called themselves missionaries evangelised outside their own ethnic group. They were engaged in regional and transnational developments. The article attends to local and regional historical processes to show how African missionary activities were infused with transnational notions of belonging to a world religion.
