Chapter Summary

The 27th of April 1994 marks for South Africa the end of apartheid and the transition to a constitutional democracy. For Bernard Lategan there was no further need to read Galatians in challenging the legacy of apartheid. His interest in Pauls letter though, has not dwindled. Nevertheless, he still uses Galatians as his example, when he draws on the history of early Christianity. Future historians, writing on the New Testament Society of South Africa (NTSSA) and their ethics of interpretation during the age of apartheid will gratefully draw on the positive example of Lategan and Galatians. Bernard Lategan contribution to the discussion on hermeneutics undoubtedly had a remarkable impact on theological development in South Africa.

Keywords: apartheid State; Bernard Lategan; constitutional democracy; early Christianity; Galatians; NTSSA
