Its influences reached the American continent through the enslaved men and women who had witnessed its correlations and endured among their descendants a source of spiritual and political strength. Kongo Christianity is more than a singular historical occurrence that defined a part of the African continent, it is a phenomenon whose influence has resonated across the early modern Atlantic.
