Since the sixteenth century, Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity and the
indigenous religions of Ethiopia have been confronted with, and influenced
by, numerous Catholic and Protestant missions. This book offers
historical, anthropological and personal analyses of these encounters. The
discussion ranges from the Jesuit debate on circumcision to Oromo Bible
translation, from Pentecostalism in Addis Ababa to conversion processes
among the Nuer. Juxtaposing past and present, urban and rural, the book
breaks new ground in both religious and African studies.
