SHEPPERSON, G. Ethiopianism : Past and Present. Excerpted from in Christianity in Tropical Africa (ed. C.G. Bacta, O.U.P., 1968), Chapter IX. Pp [249]-268. 8vo, plain blue stapled card covers. “The history of Christianity, like the history of all great religions and social movements, is strewn with the wrecks of words, wrenched from their original meanings, widened or narrowed, and forced into a bewildering variety of vessels that churn their ways in seas of semantic confusion. The Church in Africa south of the Sahara has acquired and added to the many Christian verbal transmogrifications thatcame originally from the north. In its turn, it has produced its own eccen tric ecclesiastical etymology, of which, perhaps the most striking example is the story of Ethiopianism.” (p. 249). Penned source note to first page, a few pencilled check marks, else very good. Signed with inscription by theauthor. 15.00
