Daniel J. Danielsen in The Brethren Historical Review

Dollin 2This paper is a brief biography of Daniel Jacob Danielsen (1871– 1916) from the Faeroe Islands, the tiny archipelago between Scotland and Iceland. It has been known in the islands that Danielson, as he is named in English texts, was the first Faeroese missionary outside the islands, and that he was working in the Congo in the beginning of the twentieth century. It has also been known that Danielson was involved in some way investigating the cruelty in the Congo at the time. But as Danielson died in 1916, he has been nearly forgotten. There is some material about his evangelistic work in the Faeroes, but there is nearly nothing about his involvement in the Congo. Click here to read the article.
