DUNCAN, Graham. Racial Differentiation in Education for the Ministry in the Presbyterian Church of South(ern) Africa. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2023, vol.49, n.1, pp.1-19. ISSN 2412-4265.

The purpose of this article is to examine the process by which the Presbyterian Church of South(ern) Africa (PCSA), conceived of, developed and promoted its programme of theological education, during the twentieth century. This occurred after its yet to be united struggle as a collection of independent congregations and presbyteries in the nineteenth century. The article also examines how the PCSA progressed, in the light of growing racial tensions in South Africa, in a racialised manner. The article is based on archival research and secondary sources and deals with the issue within a predominantly chronological framework.
