Abstract:In a preface to L.F. Roemer, 'Tilforladelig Efterretning om Kysten Guinea (A true account of the Coast of Guinea) (1760), Erik Pontoppida, at the time deputy chancellor of the University of Copenhagen and a prominent figure in Danish Pietism, sets out his views on the relationship between Christianity and negro slavery. The representativeness of his views is assessed by giving first a summary of the international research which has been done on the relationship between slavery and Christianity and then by systematically reviewing the few known Danish sources from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries which throw some light on the question. Notes.
