Abstract

This article examines in a wider context the relations between church and state in Rhodesia from the Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) in 1965 to the Pearce Commission in 1972. The major points of church-state conflict during this period centred around UDI, Proposals for a New Constitution for Rhodesia of 1969, Rhodesia's Land Tenure Act of 1969, and the 1971 Anglo-Rhodesian Proposals for a Settlement of Rhodesia's constitutional problems. While the Catholic Bishops of Rhodesia spoke with one voice on these vital issues, there were differences of opinion within and across Protestant denominations. Nevertheless, through their umbrella organisation, the Christian Council of Rhodesia, the Protestants made common cause with the Catholic Bishops in their opposition to the Rhodesian State on various issues.
