Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the establishment of a new religious institution, the church, on the Dii-plain. It describes the work of the Lutheran mission but also analyse the role that local African Christians played in this enterprise. The expansion of the Norwegian mission to new areas was first and foremost dependent upon the response of the local population, but the work was also limited and promoted by several external factors. Finances were a central issue discussed at all the annual conferences, an issue that became increasingly difficult during the Second World War and the years of reconstruction in Europe. By approaching the matter through this angle of internal and external influence, the establishment of a church will be analysed through four phases: Establishment, progress, and setback, Status quo, Reconstruction and Consolidation and growth.

Keywords: Church; Dii-Plain; Europe; Norwegian mission; Second World War
