"This article uses a hitherto overlooked category of historical source, an outstation chronicle covering the period 1911‒1920. It shows how juridical practice within the Protestant mission church of Nkoranza (then in the Ashanti region of what is now central Ghana) created and sharpened a Christian group identity in a predominantly non-Christian context. It is argued that the interdependence of the in-group and out-group at the local level helped to shape the church’s juridical forms."
