When Pentecostalism Meets African Indigenous Religions: Conflict, Compromise, or Incorporation?

  • Naar M’fundisi-Holloway
Part of the African Histories and Modernities book series (AHAM)


M’fundisi-Holloway explores the interface between Pentecostalism and African traditional religions in Africa. Focusing on the Zambian context, this chapter examines the product of this interface by interrogating themes of antagonism, negotiation, compromise, and incorporation. This contact explains postcolonial dynamics in Africa after independence, not only from colonial rule, but in the creation of churches that were independent of mission churches and classical Pentecostalism.
