These missionaries were drawn, often not unwillingly, into political affairs, both within Uganda and internation- ally. The contribution made by Tucker was frequently ill-informed and sometimes tendentious. Nevertheless, he sought to uphold the long-standing CMS regulation that missionaries should abstain from any political involvement. The theoretical distinction between the sacred and secular was alien to the intellectual heritage of Uganda, and in practice it was contradicted by the activities of CMS mission- aries, who justified their involvement in terms of considering Uganda to be a 'special case'. The purpose of this article is to examine the involvement of Bishop A.R. Tucker in the establishment of a British Protectorate in Uganda between 1890 and 1894.

Abstract

BISHOP ALFRED TUCKER AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A BRITISH PROTECTORATE IN UGANDA 1890-94 BY TUDOR GRIFFITHS (Monmouth Diocese, formerly of Bishop Tucker Theological College, Uganda) ABSTRACT The article considers the involvement of Bishop Alfred Tucker and other mis- sionaries of the Church Missionary Society (CMS) in the establishment of a British Protectorate in Buganda between 1890 and 1894. These missionaries were drawn, often not unwillingly, into political affairs, both within Uganda and internation- ally. The contribution made by Tucker was frequently ill-informed and sometimes tendentious. Nevertheless, he sought to uphold the long-standing CMS regulation that missionaries should abstain from any political involvement. The theoretical distinction between the sacred and secular was alien to the intellectual heritage of Uganda, and in practice it was contradicted by the activities of CMS mission- aries, who justified their involvement in terms of considering Uganda to be a 'special case'. The purpose of this article is to examine the involvement of Bishop A.R. Tucker in the establishment of a British Protectorate in Uganda between 1890 and 1894. During this period Tucker was Bishop of Eastern Equatorial Africa, a vast diocese that included what subse- quently became the country of Uganda. In 1897 Tucker
