Abstract

This article examines how the development of Christianity among the BaNgwato was influenced by socio-cultural practices. The most important factor is that where there was an attempt to contextualise, there was a rapid growth of Christianity, whilst where this was hindered or ignored, the response was negative. To adequately discuss this, I have selected four examples of socio-cultural practices : medical practices, war rites, initiation rites and marriage practices. The objective of the article is therefore to demonstrate that these factors greatly influenced the role and importance of Christianity among the BaN gwato.
