Was Dr. Livingstone a failure at conversion?

Thursday, January 04, 2007

A new book entitled Dr. Livingstone, I Presume by Clare Pettit suggests that the famous Dr. Livingstone may have converted only one African to Christianity and that he lapsed after only three months. Just by way of a recap, Livingstone:-
  • Was born March 1813 in Blantyre, South Lanarkshire.
  • Was self-educated whilst working in a cotton mill.
  • Suffered an injured left arm following a lion attack.
  • Discovered Victoria Falls.
At death, his body was repatriated to but his heart buried in Africa.

Dr. Livingstone presumed saved by tartan jacket

Wednesday, December 27, 2006

Edinburgh scientists believe that Dr. Livingstone may have been saved from the effects of a lion attack by an acid found in the dyes used in the tartan of his jacket. The acid may have neutralised the bacteria present after the attack in 1843 . It may be that the dyes neutralised the pasteurella multocida carried by big cats. Dr Livingstone ultimately recovered from a badly broken left arm and 11 separate puncture wounds caused by the lion's teeth whereas his colleagues never fully recovered from their wounds.
