About this Item
- The Case against Kikuyu: A Study in Vital Principles.
- Frank Weston (1871--1924) was an Anglican clergyman who served as bishop of Zanzibar (present-day Tanzania) in 1908--24. He was a staunch Anglo-Catholic, meaning he belonged to the wing of the Anglican Church that emphasized the church's continuity with its Roman Catholic heritage rather than its Protestant identity. Weston became involved in the bitter Kikuyu controversy of 1913--14, which arose from a 1913 conference in Kikuyu (present-day Kenya), British East Africa, where Anglicans, Methodists, and Presbyterians agreed to federate in response to a perceived threat from non-Christian groups. Weston objected to federation, and in particular to the exchange of pulpits and the admission of non-Anglicans to communion in Anglican churches. He denounced as heretics the leading proponents of the Kikuyu arrangements, William George Peel, bishop of Mombasa, and J.J. Willis, bishop of Uganda. The Case against Kikuyu: A Study in Vital Principles is Weston's most thorough exposition of his views on the controversy. The copy shown here is from a bound compilation of ten documents relating to the early history of the Anglican Church in Uganda in the library of Uganda Christian University at Mukono, near Kampala. The university was founded in 1997 by the Anglican Church of Uganda and incorporates Bishop Tucker Theological College, founded in 1913.
