ABSTRACT
The article offers a brief history of creationism in South Africa in the 20th century. The settlers were followed by the French Huguenots and by the British who have retained their language and customs. Transvaal and the Orange Free State, two independent dutch-speaking republics, were established in the 19th century. It is cited that the Afrikaans churches have played a role to foster Afrikaner identity, including the Dutch Reformed Church (DRC), the Reformed Churches of South Africa (RCSA), and the Reformed Church.
