Title:The Trappist missions : KwaZulu-Natal’s forgotten treasure
Publisher:Otterley Press

Summary: The twenty-two Trappist Missions of KwaZulu-Natal were established by an Austrian born Trappist Monk, Francis Pfanner, between 1880 and 1908, at a time when there was little infrastructure in Natal. Mariannhill Monastery, the mother house monastery, was to become the only Abbey in Africa, serving the outlying missions. The missions were mostly constructed with local materials, or with items manufactured at Mariannhill. This book celebrates the achievement of The Trappist by focusing on a brief history, the beauty of each mission and the mother house, Mariannhill. It is not surprising that many clergy seek the Canonisation of Francis Pfanner, in acknowledgement of his enormous achievements. -- Provided by publisher.
