Abstract:Since the middle of the 1980s large groups of Blacks set out on pilgrimage to Cancele, a remote Transkei village. Object of the pilgrimage is a faith-healer, Mrs Nomapuleti Florah Ludlolo, an Anglican, who started healing other people, by water and prayer, after being healed herself by God from a serious disease. The author, who spent one day in Cancele (5 July 1982) describes in detail the ceremonies of that day. At the end he evaluates the pilgrimage. Notes.
