Resumen

BRUNSDON, Alfred  y  VAN DER MERWE, Sarel. From Mojadi to Mafikeng: notes on the newfound Department of Theology. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2013, vol.39, n.1, pp.01-08. ISSN 2412-4265.

In January 2011 an event of church historical significance took place when the new Department of Theology opened its doors on the Mafikeng campus of North-West University. Forming part of the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences, this department is delivering theological training to students in and from an African context.  Now operational for a year, this article will document and narrate its founding and historical path, from humble beginnings as a mission project in Mareetsane to its current status as the Department of Theology at a recognised university.  The article also conveys the current narrative for the department by providing biographical information of students and reflecting on the content of curricula.  By means of deduction, the research also identifies some of the opportunities and challenges awaiting this new department, creating a framework for further critical reflection on theological training in an African context.
