For a long time, Tanzania under its charismatic President Nyerere was considered to be a model. The concept of an African form of socialism and also the cooperation between church and state seemed to be exemplary. But in the early 1990s, in a time of political re-orientation, conflicts began to emerge.This volume examines the different periods in the relationship between church and state from independence to 1994. New tendencies, as for instance the impact of the charismatic movement and the increasing tensions between Christians and Muslims, are also analysed. The research is based on interviews and archival material collected in Tanzania and Europe.
