Abstract

The paper proposes macro-structural explanations for the rise and development of African Initiated Churches (AICs) in South Africa by reference to globalisation theories. A theoretical exploration: the study reviews arguments and recent statistics on the development of AICS in South Africa. The concepts of world-economy and world-political culture are applied to the, emergence of Zionist Christian churches in the Transkei region, to show how AICs can be linked to the global diffusion of the nation-state (as the primary unit in the world division of labour) and to ideas generated and accepted globally (e.g. ""development"").
