  • Abstract:

    On 01 October 1962, Albert Geyser resigned as professor of the University of Pretoria after having been found guilty of the charge of heresy. The Rector Professor C.H. Rautenbach, under pressure from church leadership, made it impossible for him to stay on. Subsequently, on 26 August 1963, Prof. Adrianus Van Selms resigned as lecturer of the Faculty of Theology. The Executive of the General Assembly of the Hervormde Kerk decided that Van Selms’s resignation as lecturer meant that his status as ordained minister of the Hervormde Kerk, was automatically rescinded.
