This paper assesses early missionary impacts that galvanized African nationalism. A later evaluation of African historiography confirmed this as one takes quick survey of recent African church historiographers’ books and articles on the topic. This is an on-going debate and it is hoped that the clarifications of these factors may in some way facilitate the understanding of origin of nationalism in Africa, which is the ultimate aim of this paper. Undoubtedly, the research will be of great help to modern nationalists and patriots in areas of politics, religion, culture and social issues.
