Extractions: FURTHER REFLECTIONS Bodija Journal , n. 2 (1990), 71-75 The Middle Period of African Church historybetween early North and East African, and the 19th-20th century missionary movementis one of the least known but most fascinating episodes in the history of the Church. I have presented the main events of this period in my book, A history of the Catholic Church in Tropical Africa, 1445-1850 Particularly intriguing is the discovery, when the Portuguese first came to Benin in the latter part of the 15th century, of evidence of previous Christian influence. Christian influence from the African hinterland João de Barros described a cross which the Benin king wore around his neck. It was sent from the Ogané. The Benin ambassador to the Ogané wore a similar cross. That this cross is a Christian symbol fits well with its shape, as seen on carvings and bronzes, which is the Nubian cross, and with the presence of a chain of Christian influence and/or such crosses from Nubia right to Benin. The identity of the Ogané is more problematic. De Barros thought he was the Prester John or emperor of Ethiopia. Hodgkin
Extractions: fig. 2 In order to fully understand the significance of this metaphor, it must be noted that the Yoruba creation myth traces the origin of the human body to an archetypal sculpture (ere) modeled by the artist-deity Obatala and then activated by the divine breath (emi) of Olodumare, located in the sculpture's head. This creative process occurs inside a pregnant woman's body and takes about nine months to mature. According to the myth, every individual, before being born into the physical world, must proceed to the workshop of Ajalamopin, the heavenly potter, to choose one of several undifferentiated, ready-made Ori Inu, or "inner heads" on display in Ajalamopin's workshop. Each inner head contains Olodumare's àse (enabling power), and the one chosen by an individual predetermines his/her lot (ipin) in the physical world.

African culture, tradition, religion, language and ways of life have been the worst for it right from when Western civilisation and religion berthed on the coasts of Africa in the garbs of colonialism and imperialism. Even in contemporary times, these twin agents of Western aggression against traditional Africa have continue their pull-it-down agenda against African culture and religion with the rise of globalisation and Pentecostalism. Today, the relics of what survived the Western onslaught are nothing but mangled remains of what used to be originally African.

Extractions: NIGERIA Much has been said and written about Nigeria, her people and culture, economy and politics, that sheds light on the tremendous potential of this African Giant. However, little is known to the outside world about the many exciting tourist attractions available in Nigeria: Historic sites nestled amid rivers and rain forests, breathtaking mountain vistas, remote creek villages, miles of pristine beaches and exotic national wildlife reserves. There are also museums, festivals, music and dance, a rich cultural melange right down to everyday traditional markets. These are just some of the spectacular sights and sensual delights awaiting the traveler to Nigeria. Nigeria has the largest population of any country in Africa (about 120 million), and the greatest diversity of cultures, ways of life, cities and terrain. With a total land area of 923,768 sq. km. (356,668 sq. mi.) Nigeria is the 14th largest country in Africa. Its coastline, on the Gulf of Guinea, stretches 774 km (480 mi.). Nigeria shares its international border of 4,470 km (2513 mi.) with four neighbors: Chad, Cameroon, Benin, and Niger. Until 1989 the capital was Lagos, with a population of about 2,500,000, but the government recently moved the capital to Abuja.
Extractions: J. A. I. Bewaji It is proverbial that what distinguishes human languages from their subhuman antecedents and animal contemporaries are their infinitely remarkable capacity for production and reproduction of endlessly new combinations. Let me begin by making a few rather oversimplified general statements. These will help us appreciate the gravity of the problem on hand and, thus, facilitate the discussion that follows: First, language is the medium in which all animals that have the facility communicate ideas, impressions, information, displeasure, warnings, etc. Consequently, language serves in the interactive process. Hence, there are various forms of language, the most obvious of which is verbal. Other forms are sign, symbol, graph, etc. Thirdly, language (retroactively) identifies and distinguishes. It confers socio-cultural traits, creating mannerisms and imposing gestural constraints. It protects the traditions of those that have distinct languages from invasive tendencies, enhances the independence of linguistic groups and is a basis for developing national pride and identity in relevant situations. is , to represent such phenomena in neologic forms. This is evident in the way that science, broadly conceived as the episteme (and in some sense, the metaphysic) of nature, proceeds in such instances.
