Abstract

BUCHNER, Elsje P.  and  MULLER, Julian C.. The story of the Department of Practical Theology. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.30, n.3, pp. 1-5. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v30i3.153.

This article tells the story of the development of the Department of Practical Theology of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Pretoria. The story goes back to the start of the Faculty in 1938, although the Department of Practical Theology was only established in 1966 when Professor H.D.A. du Toit applied himself fully to the subject and Professor C.W.H. Boshoff became the first full-time lecturer for Missiology. The article is written mainly from the perspective of the Dutch Reformed Church, but with the acknowledgement of the appointments of Professor Yolanda Dreyer from the Nederduitsch Reformed Church of Africa and Professor Maake Masango from the Uniting Presbyterian Church of Southern Africa.

Keywords : Department of Practical Theology; Faculty of Theology; University of Pretoria; missiology; theological teaching.
