Religious Encounter And The Making Of The Yoruba

Full Product Description

In this magisterial book, J. D. Y. Peel contends that it is through their encounter with Christian missions in the mid-19th century that the Yoruba came to know themselves as a distinctive people. Peel's detailed study of the encounter is based on the rich archives of the Anglican Church Missionary Society, which contain the journals written by the African agents of mission, who, as the first generation of literate Yoruba, played a key role in shaping modern Yoruba consciousness. This distinguished book pays special attention to the experiences of ordinary men and women and shows how the process of Christian conversion transformed Christianity into something more deeply Yoruba.

Religious Encounter And The Making Of The Yoruba by J.d.y. Peel was published by Indiana University Press in January 2003. The ISBN for Religious Encounter And The Making Of The Yoruba is 9780253215888.
