Chapter Summary

The Dii discourse shows that a Christian narrative had entered the Dii narrative and become part of the stories told around the fire at night in order to explain Dii history to future generations. In these stories Norwegian missionaries had become heroic liberators who fought for the Dii cause against the Fulbe and the colonial administration. Norwegian missionaries arrived in Cameroon as representatives of a world-wide modern mission movement. The economic dominance of the Western world inspired laid Protestant Christians to spread not only the message of colonialism and capitalism, but also the Gospel to the end of the world. The chapter introduces the image of a path in order to understand the Dii movement towards conversion, and the author understand crisis, context, translatability, and attitude to be marks which made up this Dii path towards Christianity.

Keywords: Christianity; colonial administration; Dii-mission; Norwegian missionaries
