dc.description.abstract • Opsomming: Mariannhill-klooster is in 1882 deur die Trappiste-monnike op die plaas Zeekoegat in Natal gestig. Voordat hulle met direkte evangelisasie begin het, het hulle eers die groot en produktiewe kloosterplaas ontwikkel en die nodige geboue opgerig. Eers in 1884 is met formele sendingwerk begin en teen 1898 was Mariannhill, wat in daardie stadium 285 monnike gehuisves het, die grootste abdy in die wêreld. In 1909 is Mariannhill van die Trappiste-orde losgemaak en het dit ʼn afsonderlike sendinggemeente, bekend as die Congregation of Missionaries of Mariannhill, geword. Sendelinge van Mariannhill werk tans nie net in Natal nie, maar ook in Transkei, Zimbabwe, Nieu-Guinee en Brasilië. en_US
dc.description.abstract • Summary: The Mariannhill monastery was established in 1882 on the farm Zeekoegat in Natal by the Trappist monks who, before any direct evangelization, cultivated the large and productive monastery farm and erected the necessary buildings. Formal mission work did not begin until 1884 and by 1898, with 185 monks, Mariannhill had become the largest abbey in the world. It was separated in 1909 from the Trappist order and became a separate missionary congregation known as the Congregation of Missionaries of Mariannhill. Today Mariannhill missionaries are at work not only in Natal, but also in the Transkei, Zimbabwe, New Guinea, and Brazil.
