Publisher description: This book tells the story of the Christian religious movement led by Dona Beatriz Kimpa Vita in the Kingdom of Kongo from 1704 until her death, by burning at the stake, in 1706. Beatriz, a young woman, claimed to be possessed by St Anthony, argued that Jesus was a Kongolese, and criticized Italian Capuchin missionaries in her country for not supporting black saints. The movement was largely a peace movement, with a following among the common people, attempting to stop the devastating cycle of civil wars between contenders for the Kongolese throne. Thornton supplies background information on the Kingdom, the development of Catholicism in Kongo since 1491, the nature and role of local warfare in the Atlantic slave trade, and contemporary everyday life, as well as sketching the lives of some local personalities.

Das neuzeitliche Europa war durch eine vielfältige religiös-konfessionelle Differenzierung bestimmt. Infolgedessen sahen sich die Konfessionen und Religionen beständig herausgefordert, ihre eigene Identität jeweils in Abgrenzung von konkurrierenden Entwürfen religiöser Weltdeutung und Sinnstiftung zu definieren und sich politisch gegen die Vertreter solcher Entwürfe zu behaupten. Mit der Verbreitung des Ideals der religiösen Toleranz erfuhren die Mechanismen der Exklusion, auf denen die Konstruktion religiös-konfessioneller Identitäten herkömmlich beruhte, signifikante Veränderungen.

++++ Band 19 der Neuen Fischer Weltgeschichte – eine Geschichte Afrikas jenseits aller Klischees, faszinierend und aktuell ++++ Bis heute sehen viele Europäer Afrika als »Herz der Finsternis«, als unbekannten, rückständigen Kontinent. Adam Jones zeigt in seiner faszinierenden, von der Steinzeit bis zum Kolonialismus reichenden Geschichte Afrikas, wie wenig dies der Realität entspricht. Von den Völkern der wüstenreichen Regionen im Norden über die zentralafrikanischen Gebiete mit ihren Savannen und Regenwäldern bis zu den Anrainern des Atlantik und des Indischen Ozeans schildert er die vielfältige Geschichte dieses Erdteils. Das moderne Afrika können wir erst verstehen, wenn wir seine vorkoloniale Entwicklung ernst nehmen und uns von europäischen Zuschreibungen lösen – was Adam Jones in beeindruckender Weise gelingt. Die »Neue Fischer Weltgeschichte« ist die erste umfassende Universalgeschichte des 21. Jahrhunderts. Ihr stringentes Konzept setzt Maßstäbe, die Lesbarkeit ihrer Darstellungen erfüllt höchste Ansprüche. Die 21-bändige Reihe wird – wie ihre legendäre Vorgängerin – Standardwerk auf Jahre hin sein: in Schule, Studium, Weiterbildung, für alle wissenshungrigen Leserinnen und Leser.

Despite recent advances in the study of black thought, black women intellectuals remain often neglected. This collection of essays by fifteen scholars of history and literature establishes black women's places in intellectual history by engaging the work of writers, educators, activists, religious leaders, and social reformers in the United States, Africa, and the Caribbean. Dedicated to recovering the contributions of thinkers marginalized by both their race and their gender, these essays uncover the work of unconventional intellectuals, both formally educated and self-taught, and explore the broad community of ideas in which their work participated. The end result is a field-defining and innovative volume that addresses topics ranging from religion and slavery to the politicized and gendered reappraisal of the black female body in contemporary culture. Contributors are Mia E. Bay, Judith Byfield, Alexandra Cornelius, Thadious Davis, Corinne T. Field, Arlette Frund, Kaiama L. Glover, Farah J. Griffin, Martha S. Jones, Natasha Lightfoot, Sherie Randolph, Barbara D. Savage, Jon Sensbach, Maboula Soumahoro, and Cheryl Wall.

Patrick Manning refuses to divide the African diaspora into the experiences of separate regions and nations. Instead, he follows the multiple routes that brought Africans and people of African descent into contact with one another and with Europe, Asia, and the Americas. In weaving these stories together, Manning shows how the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Indian Ocean fueled dynamic interactions among black communities and cultures and how these patterns resembled those of a number of connected diasporas concurrently taking shape across the globe. Manning begins in 1400 and traces five central themes: the connections that enabled Africans to mutually identify and hold together as a global community; discourses on race; changes in economic circumstance; the character of family life; and the evolution of popular culture. His approach reveals links among seemingly disparate worlds. In the mid-nineteenth century, for example, slavery came under attack in North America, South America, southern Africa, West Africa, the Ottoman Empire, and India, with former slaves rising to positions of political prominence. Yet at the beginning of the twentieth century, the near-elimination of slavery brought new forms of discrimination that removed almost all blacks from government for half a century. Manning underscores the profound influence that the African diaspora had on world history, demonstrating the inextricable link between black migration and the rise of modernity, especially in regards to the processes of industrialization and urbanization. A remarkably inclusive and far-reaching work, The African Diaspora proves that the advent of modernity cannot be imaginatively or comprehensively engaged without taking the African peoples and the African continent as a whole into account.

In the seventeenth-century English Atlantic, religious beliefs and practices played a central role in creating racial identity. English Protestantism provided a vocabulary and structure to describe and maintain boundaries between insider and outsider. In this path-breaking study, Heather Miyano Kopelson peels back the layers of conflicting definitions of bodies and competing practices of faith in the puritan Atlantic, demonstrating how the categories of “white,” “black,” and “Indian” developed alongside religious boundaries between “Christian” and “heathen” and between “Catholic” and “Protestant.” Faithful Bodies focuses on three communities of Protestant dissent in the Atlantic World: Bermuda, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. In this “puritan Atlantic,” religion determined insider and outsider status: at times Africans and Natives could belong as long as they embraced the Protestant faith, while Irish Catholics and English Quakers remained suspect. Colonists’ interactions with indigenous peoples of the Americas and with West Central Africans shaped their understandings of human difference and its acceptable boundaries. Prayer, religious instruction, sexual behavior, and other public and private acts became markers of whether or not blacks and Indians were sinning Christians or godless heathens. As slavery became law, transgressing people of color counted less and less as sinners in English puritans’ eyes, even as some of them made Christianity an integral part of their communities. As Kopelson shows, this transformation proceeded unevenly but inexorably during the long seventeenth century.
