In the past various Afrikaans-speaking theologians have applied viewpoints of the well-known Dutch scholar and reformed theologian Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920), in their support of apartheid. During the past decades this fact, as well as the question as to whether they interpreted Kuyper correct­ly, has often been a point of discussion in various circles. What has, how­ever, rarely functioned in the debate, is Kuyper's own reflection and stance on the apartheid of his time, and the way in which this reflection ties in with his reasoning in general and especially his concept of special and common grace.
