    Abstract

    LOBA-MKOLE, Jean-Claude. Paul and Africa?. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2011, vol.67, n.1, pp. 00-00. ISSN 0259-9422.

    The relationship between Saint Paul and the continent of Africa has never been a significant point of discussion in the New Testament studies. The same can be observed about other continents, even if the study of the Pauline corpus touches on some countries of Europe and the Middle East. The present article was triggered by the invitation of the Catholic Church to celebrate the 3rd millennium of Paul's birthday during the period of June 2008 - June 2009, which was declared as the Year of Paul all over the world. It raises and discusses the question of relevance of Paul to Africa and vice versa in the light of intercultural exegesis.
