The term "Calvinism" in the Afrikaans historiography. A historical survey
This article deals with the uses of the term "Calvinism/Calvinistic" in the Afrikaner school of historiography. A careful investigation shows that it was first used during the latter part of the 19th century as a designation of the "northern" Afrikaners. During the 20th century, however, the term received a broadened meaning and application. As an image it articulated the meaning of Afrikaner history. Since its use was not documented, the issue of Afrikaner Calvinism needs theological and historical scrutinising.
