Abstract

CARL FREDRIK HALLENCREUTZ, 1934-2001 The sudden death, on 18 March, of Carl Fredrik Hallencreutz, aged 66, from a cerebral haemorrhage has come as a profound shock to a wide circle of friends and collaborators, above all in Sweden but also in Zimbabwe and elsewhere. He has been for many years the princi- pal standard-bearer of the Uppsala tradition of religious, missionary and ecumenical studies and was for some years a member of this Journal's editorial advisory board. Professor Hallencreutz was in numer- ous ways the heir of Bengt Sundkler, who supervised his important doctoral thesis, Kraemer towards Tambaram: A Study in Hendrik Kraemer's Hissionary Approach (1966), and to whose chair of mission studies in the University of Uppsala he succeeded. In collaboration with Peter Beyerhaus he edited the symposium in honour of Sundkler's sixtieth birthday, The Church Crossing Frontiers (1969), and in due course he took over from him too the editing of the Saensk MissionsTidskrift. Still more personally he derived from Bengt a certain academic and spiritual ethos: the locat- ing of mission studies within a very open but also intellectually serious context, at once historical and theological.
