The Springbok Antidorcas marsupialis (Zimmerman, 1780)/J.D. Skinner and G.N. Louw
R. Hofmeyr
African Zoology , 2011,
Abstract: Few. if any, scientists would be more eligible to write a monograph on the springbok than John Skinner and Gideon Louw. Both have researched this species extensively and also have wide experience of other ungulate species to place the information in context.

THE CHURCH HISTORY SOCIETY of SOUTHERN AFRICA (CHSSA) Attempting to come of age: The story of the CHSSA between 1991 and 2005
JW Hofmeyr
Acta Theologica , 2010,
Abstract: In this article, the focus is on the question whether the Church History Society of Southern Africa (CHSSA) has matured after its 35 years of existence (1970-2005) to a fairly mature theological society in the South African academic context. After an introduction, attention is given to the proposals of an ad hoc committee that investigated the reorganization of the society into a more inclusive and representative organization, the different conferences, the journal, membership and management of the society, theological traditions and positions present in the society and some perspectives on the road ahead. Without trying to provide an official audit of the society, it is finally concluded that it is attempting to come of age and the prospects for the future are relatively positive. However, only the years to come will prove whether this society has fully come of age.
Die invloed van Ernst Bloch op die Politieke Teologie van Johann Baptist Metz
Murray Hofmeyr
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.4102/hts.v59i4.692
Abstract: The influence of Ernst Bloch on the Political Theology of Johann Baptist Metz This article deals with the decisive influence that Ernst Bloch had on the young German Catholic theologian during the 1960s, as he grew progressively dissatisfied with the categories of Rahner’s anthro-pological or transcendental theology. It is argued that Bloch’s influence is to be understood more in terms of his modern Jewish Messianism than his Marxism. Through his intense friendship with Bloch. Metz rediscovered the Jewish traditions that have been suppressed in Catholic Christianity. He gained the courage to confront the certainties of his own theological tradition with his unreconciled experiences of non-identity. Bloch taught Metz to appropriate eschatology as belonging to the centre of Christianity, to relate transcendence and future, and to clarify the relationship between human praxis and future as transcendence. But such eschatology operates with a problematical concept of praxis.
Die herkoms, intensie en metode van die “nuwe” Politieke Teologie van Johann Baptist Metz
Murray Hofmeyr
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.4102/hts.v58i1.550
Abstract: The genesis, intention and method of the “new” Political Theology of Johann Baptist Metz This article describes J B Metz’s “transcendental phase”, when he worked on reformulating scholastic theology within the concepts of twentieth century anthropology. The major categories of Metz’s early thought are described in anticipation of the turn away from anthropology to the philosophy of history. The division of theological history into periods with the help of the categories anthropocentrism, theocentrism and cosmocentrism, and the distinction between conceptual framework and conceptual content, allow Metz to argue for the legitimacy of the modern era from a Christian (and specifically Catholic) point of view.
Establishing a stable society for the sake of ecclesiastical expansion in a frontier capital (King William’s Town) in the Eastern Cape: the pensioners and their village between 1855 and 1861
J.W. Hofmeyr,George S. Hofmeyr
Nederduitse Gereformeerde Teologiese Tydskrif , 2012, DOI: 10.5952/52-3-49
Abstract: For many different reasons, the Eastern Cape area has long been and remains oneof the strong focus points of general, political and ecclesiastical historians. In this first article of a series on a frontier capital (King William’s Town) in the Eastern Cape,I wish to focus on a unique socio economic aspect of the fabric of the Eastern Capesociety in the period between 1855 and 1861 i.e. the establishment of a Pensioners’ Village. It also touches on certain aspects of the process of colonization in the Eastern Cape. Eventually all of this had, besides many other influences, also an influence on the further expansion of Christianity in the frontier context of the Eastern Cape. In a next article the focus will therefore be on a discussion and analysis of the expansion of missionary work in this frontier context against the background of the establishment of the Pensioners’ Village.
The conception of the circle of concerned African women theologians: Is it African or Western?
RN Fiedler, JW Hofmeyr
Acta Theologica , 2011,
Abstract: In this article, we argue that the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians was largely conceived as African, and that it addresses the issues of African women. The Circle approaches the issue of women’s liberation from an African perspective, and is not based on a Western concept. Thus, we will show how Mercy Amba Oduyoye and her mother experienced liberation in the African context. Furthermore, by reflecting on the experiences of Mercy Amba Oduyoye and her mother in the context of the men who formed part of their world (their husbands, grandfathers and uncles), we will show how the reinterpretation of oppressive African cultures by men can bring about the liberation of African women. This is in keeping with the agenda of the Circle, namely to liberate women in the church and in society. The ecumenical bodies merely provided the structures within which the Circle was organized. The influence of Western feminist theologies enshrined in the ecumenical bodies with which Mercy Amba Oduyoye was associated, therefore had only a limited impact on the conception of the Circle.
Caesarean section wound infiltration with local anaesthetic for postoperative pain relief – any benefit?
AA Bamigboye, GJ Hofmeyr
South African Medical Journal , 2010,
Abstract: Delivery by caesarean section (CS) is becoming more frequent. Childbirth is an emotion-filled event, and the mother needs to bond with her baby as early as possible. Any intervention that leads to improvement in pain relief is worthy of investigation. Local anaesthetics have been employed as an adjunct to other methods of postoperative pain relief, but reports on the effectiveness of this strategy are conflicting. This review attempted to assess the effects of local anaesthetic agent wound infiltration and/or abdominal nerve blocks on pain after CS and the mother’s well-being and interaction with her baby. Methods. We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group’s Trials Register (April 2009).The selection criteria were randomised controlled trials of local analgesia during CS to reduce pain afterwards. Twenty studies (1 150 women) were included. Results. Women who had wound infiltration after CS performed under regional analgesia had a decrease in morphine consumption at 24 hours compared with placebo (morphine dose -1.70 mg; 95% confidence interval (CI) –2.75 to –0.94). Women who had wound infiltration and peritoneal spraying with local anaesthetic after CS under general anaesthesia (1 study, 100 participants) had a reduced need for opioid rescue (risk ratio (RR) 0.51; 95% CI 0.38 to 0.69). The numerical pain score (0 -10) within the first hour was also reduced (mean difference (MD) -1.46; 95% CI –2.60 to –0.32). Women with regional analgesia who had local anaesthetic and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory cocktail wound infiltration consumed less morphine (1 study, 60 participants; MD –7.40 mg; 95% CI –9.58 to –5.22) compared with those who had local anaesthetic control. Women who had regional analgesia with abdominal nerve blocks had decreased opioid consumption (4 studies, 175 participants; MD –25.80 mg; 95% CI –50.39 to –5.37). For outcome in terms of the visual analogue pain score (0 - 10) over 24 hours, no advantage was demonstrated in the single study of 50 participants who had wound infiltration with a mixture of local analgesia and narcotics versus local analgesia. Conclusions. Local anaesthetic infiltration and abdominal nerve blocks as adjuncts to regional analgesia and general anaesthesia are of benefit in CS by reducing opioid consumption. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may provide additional pain relief. S Afr Med J 2010; 100: 313-319.
Shoulder dystocia: An update and review of new techniques
CA Cluver, GJ Hofmeyr
South African Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology , 2009,
Abstract: The definition of shoulder dystocia and the incidence vary. Worldwide, shoulder dystocia may be increasing. In this update we look at the complications for both mother and fetus, and review the risk factors and strategies for possible prevention. Management options include the McRoberts position, techniques to deliver the anterior and posterior shoulder, and finally salvage manoeuvres, which include posterior axillary sling traction (PAST), the Zavanelli manoeuvre and fracture of the clavicles. In cases of fetal death associated with undelivered shoulder dystocia, one can consider the trans-abdominal performance or facilitation of traditional vaginal manoeuvres. We suggest a simplified mnemonic, ‘MAPS’ – M: McRoberts, A: anterior shoulder, P: posterior shoulder, and S: salvage. A video teaching programme will be available shortly on the World Health Organization Reproductive Health Library (www.who.int/rhl; rhl@who.int).
