Since the mid nineteenth century German mission organisations have worked in the territory now known as the Republic of South Africa. From the turn of the twentieth century (Baudert 1938:97) in addition to the Berlin Mission Society which was the largest external mission in southern Africa and is the focus of this study, about 60 other evangelical mission organisations were active in South Africa.
