I have been thinking of Cedric a great deal while on sabbatical, as my project has been to complete a book on the ‘reception’ of the Bible in South Africa since Van Riebeeck until today. Cedric and I often exchanged correspondence about this long and ambiguous history of the Bible, and I refer to him often in the book. I hope that some of his work will live on in my work. I know that there are many other people for whom and ‘sites’ where his life has had an impact.
