The role of church missions in the systematic development of political life in the Belgian Congo from 1885-1960
Thesis (M.A.L.S.)--Georgetown University, 2010.; Includes bibliographical references.; Text (Electronic thesis) in PDF format. Belgium ruled the Congo from about 1885 until 1960. During this period, many Congolese were killed, as the Belgians exacted cruel control of the land and resources. The Catholics and other missionaries received funding from the Belgians, and later became proxies for Belgian rule in the Congo. Even though Protestant missionaries run missionary schools, Catholics controlled the educational system and benefited from Belgian benevolence to support their efforts. The paper will research the ongoing work of the Church during this period of Belgian rule in the Congo.
