Tensions of Empire

This chapter explores the models of colonial domination in South Africa. It examines the making of the nonconformist missionaries to the Griqua and Tswana as agents of empire, and discusses the works of the evangelists of the London Missionary Society and Wesleyan Methodist Missionary Society (WMMS) in South Africa. The chapter traces the missions back to the society that spawned them in Britain circa 1810–1840 and follows the evangelists onto the colonial stage itself.

Keywords:   colonial domination, South Africa, nonconformist missionaries, Griqua, Tswana, London Missionary Society, WMMS, evangelists, Britain
