African Bishops

  • ZA HPRA AB742
  • Archief
  • 1889 - 1934


The letters are interesting, not only giving a good picture of the work of the Anglican church in various parts of Africa but also fore-shadowing some of the political problems which have arisen in Africa such as the racial friction between black and white, the colour bar in South Africa and the church's attitude to it and the question of the native franchise. From the letters it appears that there were problems common to the various dioceses such as the shortage of clergy, need for more money, the importance of educating the African and training African priests and the difficulties of working in vast areas where parishes were scattered.

Archbishops of Cape Town, Part 2 records

  • ZA HPRA AB1363
  • Archief
  • 1840 - 1982

The first part of the collection of the records of the Archbishop of Cape Town was transferred to the University of the Witwatersrand Library in 1974 to be added to the central Record Library of the C.P.S.A. which, since 1937, had been in the care of the University Library. It was described in 'Selected Records of the Archbishops of Cape Town', No. 6 in the Library's series of Historical and Literary Inventories of Collections,.

This present inventory, 'Selected Records of the Archbishops of Cape Town Part II', describes records transferred to the Library in instalments from 1980 to 1990 from Bishopscourt, the home of the Archbishop of Cape Town, by Mrs. A.R. 14o-tee. Provincial Archivist. The records in Part II relate, in general, to the years 1940 to 1982, later period then those in Part I but there is some overlap, there being several items from as far back as 1840.

It in a large collection in 288 pamphlet boxes and follows the alphabetical arrangement by subject used at Bishopscourt. A condensed description of each subject file is given in the inventory together with an index of personal names, churches, parishes and selected subject fields. For the benefit of researchers a list of the names of bishops in each diocese, from the origin of the diocese to date, has been provided together with a map showing the dioceses or the C.P.S.A. in existence in 1991.

The records relate to the whole of the C.P.S.A. but there is a heavy preponderance of Cape documentation because of the Archbishop's residing in Cape Town and his dual role as head of The Diocese of Cape Town as well as being Metropolitan, for the Province. They include the Archbishop's correspondence with bishops of the various dioceses and with individual members of the clergy. Not only do the records show the inspiration of the C.P.S.A. and its work, particularly in the fields education, health and social services, but they also reflect the Church's attitude to social and political problems in South Africa,.

There is much about the Church's confrontation with the State over the issue of apartheid, notably the effects of the Group Areas Act on black churches in white areas and the admission or all races to church schools. Other topics are conscientious objection and the refusal of young Anglicans, both lay and clerical, to serve in the South African Defence Force and the question of Namibia's independence and the expulsion of Bishops Mize and Winter for promoting it.
