Nubian Roots Run Deep and Early

Jun. 24, 2013

by Joel Elowsky

We recently received a book from Dr Salim Faraji on the deep roots of Nubian Christianity, celebrating the indigeneity of Nubia's Christianity and also exploring when Christianity actually came to Nubia, which according to his study is earlier than most think. This also provides further proof that Christianity went into the area south of the Sahara earlier than was first believed, and appears to have been putting roots there that flourished even before the later Byzantine missionaries.
