AFST552 Moral Teachings and Practices of African Traditional Religion (4 cr.)


The course is intended for pastoral agents with a background in theology and some experience of African cultures. It starts with an introduction to the development of African moral traditions up to the present time. Then it investigates several moral themes in the forefront of the contemporary African scene: sexuality (with particular reference to AIDS); death and dying (with particular reference to HEALING); inter-tribal/ethnic relations (with particular reference to VIOLENCE). All of these are considered in the context of trying to understand what sin and salvation are from the African viewpoint and how this understanding of morality continues to influence (ethically) peoples’ lives in contemporary Africa.
