The sisters of the Brethern Church. A story of women in the Moravian Church in South Africa

The story of early women converts of the Moravian Church is told. It is argued that this church, since it commenced with missionary work in South Africa in 1737, showed a positive and reconstructive attitude towards women. Presently many so-called coloured women hold high positions in the ministry and moderamen of this church. It is therefore appropriate thatNelson Mandela called his Cape Town residence "Genadendal" in commemoration of the first Moravian mission slation in South Africa and the work done there for the past three cellluries in service of human dignity. As such it is also appropriate to dedicaTe this ankle to Carl Borchardt for his inclusive attitude towards women colleagues.
