MASHABELA, Kenokeno  y  MADISE, Mokhele. A Threefold of Lutheran Theological Institutions in the Midst of Theological Education in South Africa: 1960-1993. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2022, vol.48, n.3, pp.1-17. ISSN 2412-4265.

This article explores the undocumented history of theological institutions belonging to the Lutheran Church in Southern Africa (LCSA) which contributed to South African theological education. The establishment of these institutions was initially managed by the mission societies of the LCSA and later the regional leadership. This development created the necessity for centralised theological training since 1910. Due to the political landscape of South Africa, theological education was adversely affected. The LCSA looked at ways to sustain theological education and as a result of the church's passion, Lutheran Theological education was established. However, the LCSA worked in collaboration with other Christian denominations to achieve its ecumenical vision and establish a solid foundation of theological education.
