  1. 1. Culture Confrontation in the Lower Congo : From the Old Congo Kingdom to the Congo Independent State with Special Reference to the Swedish Missionaries in the 1880's and 1890's

    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; culture confrontation; culture conflict; Congo; Portuguese; missionary roles; Congo Kingdom; Congo Independent State; Missionary studies; Missionsvetenskap; Studies of Missions; Missionsvetenskap;

    Abstract : The culture confrontation remains the central theme throughout this book, with special emphasis given to points of conflict. My approach to each particular era has been guided by the question: What were the areas of incompatibility or conflict between African and European culture in the Lower Congo? By focusing my analysis on the dynamics of this confrontation, the point of contact between Congolese and Europeans, I have marked that the purpose of this study is not to present a characterization of Congolese or African culture as separate entities.
