That this intelligibility be guaranteed in every culture, people and time, elements of that culture must apply in the liturgical celebrations. This is inculturation. Inculturation is possible because Christ’s incarnation itself forms the basis.

Ethnology of the Igbo.

This study has noted among other things the Igbo docility to change. The Igbo are found almost everywhere in the world and adapt with ease to their new environment. They are clever, industrious and religious but are also very assuming. Some of these qualities made the spread of the Gospel among them very rapid. But the celebrated faith is…
