About This Item
First published in 1992, this title explores the religious diversity of South Africa, organizing it into a single coherent narrative and providing the first comparative study and introduction to the topic. David Chidester emphasizes the fact that the complex distinctive character of South African religious life has taken shape with a particular, economic, social and political context, and pays special attention to the creativity of people who have suffered under conquest, colonialism and apartheid.
With an overview of African traditional religion, Christian missions, and African innovations during the nineteenth century, this reissue will be of great value to students of religious studies, South African history, anthropology, sociology, and political studies.Religions of South Africa (Routledge Revivals) (Paperback)
