Sample text

Dom Pedro was placed on the throne by the Portuguese, who maintained a small military garrison in the Kongo capital city of São Salvador to protect him from opposing rival factions. The once mighty Kongo ruler was reduced to a puppet presiding over tribal ceremonies. The Reverend Thomas Lewis served for almost twenty years as a missionary in Angola for the English Baptist Missionary Society. He arrived in São Salvador in 1887. Shortly after, he was summoned to a “state audience” with Dom Pedro in the “palace,” which Lewis described as a mud hut with a grass roof and whitewashed walls.

He continued east and soon faced new misfortunes. ” Then Serpa Pinto’s porters deserted him, but the king of the Marutse provided the Portuguese explorer with boats so that he could travel down the Zambezi River and reach the camp of the French medical missionary François Coillard. It is clear from records Serpa Pinto kept during this entire expedition that he was a racist and a man with an exaggerated sense of his own importance, who often blamed others for problems he had created. Silva Porto had already given him a great deal of help, so there is no reason to believe his men were involved in the attack.

In general, Protestant missionaries were much more likely to learn the local languages and put them into written form, primarily so that they could translate the Bible into the people’s The Teacher language. This did much to preserve the language and culture of Angola’s people. Roman Catholic missionaries focused their energies on teaching Portuguese to Angolans. ” And some of them held violently racist views that seriously compromised the Christian message they were trying to communicate. Bishop Taylor’s efforts at establishing self-supporting missions had mixed results.
