Schweinfurth was a German botanist and ethnologist, sent in 1868 by the Humboldt-Stiftung of Berlin on "an important scientific mission to the interior of East Africa." He travelled from Khartoum up the White Nile to Bahr-el-Ghazal and then through the regions inhabited by the Diur, Dinka, Bongo and Niam-Niam peoples; "crossing the Congo-Nile watershed he entered the country of the Mangbetu ... and discovered the river Uele ... which by its westward flow he knew was independent of the Nile." This discovery was "his greatest geographical achievement." He also did much to elucidate the hydrography of the Bahr-el-Ghazal system. "Of greater importance were the very considerable additions he made to the knowledge of the inhabitants and of the flora and fauna of Central Africa. He described in detail the cannibalistic practices of the Mangbetu, and his discovery of the pygmy Akka settled conclusively the question as to the existence of dwarf races in tropical Africa."--Wikipedia

THERE is no study so saddening, and none so sublime as that of the early religions of mankind. To trace back the worship of God to its simple origin, and to mark the gradual process of those degrading superstitions, and unhallowed rites which darkened, and finally extinguished His presence in the ancient world. At first men enjoyed the blessings of nature as children do, without inquiring into causes. It was sufficient for them that the earth gave them herbs, that the trees bore them fruit, that the stream quenched their thirst. They were happy, and every moment though unconsciously they offered a prayer of gratitude to Him whom as yet they did not know. And then a system of theology arose amongst them vague and indefinite, as the waters of the boundless sea. They taught each other that the sun, and the earth, the moon, and the stars were moved and illumined by a Great Soul which was the source of all life, which caused the birds to sing, the brooks to murmur, and the sea to heave
