In the past thirty years, African Church History has come of age. It is developing beyond institutional mission history, while taking profit from initial interest of cultural anthropology in indigenous religious initiatives, of colonial history in the unholy alliance between imperialism(s) and Christian missions. Author locates professional tools such as bibliographies and surveys, assesses shifts in African (Church) historiography, highlights some Dutch pioneer studies (J. van Slageren, G. Verstraelen-Gilhuis, G.J. van Butselaar a.o.) and calls attention to many ‘unknown territories’ waiting for pioneer research.
