The Christianization Of Africa In The Colonial Era Of The 19th Century: Westernization And Policy Of Annihilation

Authors : Bouledroua Nadjib .

Abstract

This article, which makes use of archival material, discusses The Christianization of Africa and its repercussions on the African social structure of the 19th century. To penetrate into the interior of Africa for the benefit of British industries, England had to abolish the slave trade in 1807. The idea of the abolitionists of the Clapham Sect to uplift the African with the new values of European know-how never took place. The Europeans only had the Bible to offer. Imminently, with the Scramble for Africa under way, the African moral and cultural standards came under impending threat, and the ancestral heritage put to the sword. Christianity created colonialism, which hatched in the name of the civilization of the white man, an unlawful policy of pillage and annihilation against the deep rooted values of a whole continent.
