1670 – The Worship of One God And Mosaic Laws Were In Negroland Before Christianity or Islam Arrived

Source: Africa being an accurate description of the regions of Ægypt, Barbary, Lybia, and Billedulgerid, the land of Negroes, Guinee, Æthiopia and the Abyssines : with all the adjacent islands, either in the Mediterranean, Atlantick, Southern or Oriental Sea, belonging thereunto : with the several denominations fo their coasts, harbors, creeks, rivers, lakes, cities, towns, castles, and villages, their customs, modes and manners, languages, religions and inexhaustible treasure : with their governments and policy, variety of trade and barter : and also of their wonderful plants, beasts, birds and serpents : collected and translated from most authentick authors and augmented with later observations : illustrated with notes and adorn’d with peculiar maps and proper sculptures (British Library) 1670 A.D.

Page 318 of the source, “The Religion of the In-land Negro’s,* most of them antiently worshipped one God, call’d Guighime, that is, Lord of Heaven: this Perswasion of theirs not being inculcated by any Priests, who study Rites and Ceremonies, imposing a reverential awe on their Disciples and Proselytes: but Instinct, and the meer dictates of Nature, which brings as soon to the acknowledgment of a Deity, something not subordinate, but infinitely supream, governing all. After this they were instructed in the Mosaick Laws, which they long and zealously observed, till some of them being converted to the Christian Faith, wholly eccli∣psed the Jewish; then Christianity flourishing many years, till Mahumetanism at last over-spreading all Asia, and these parts of Africa, they being still greedy of Novelty, fell into Apostacy, drinking in the poyson of this new and dire Infection, so that Christianity is in a manner extirpated, some few Professors of the Gospel, after the Coptick, or Egyptian manner, yet remaining in Gaoga.

This source confirms yet again that monotheism and Judaism were practiced in Africa long before Christianity and Islam arrived.
