Kimpa Vita (Dona Beatriz), 1684 – 1706
Kimpa Vita was a Kongolese prophet who lived from 1684 to 1706. She is sometimes credited with sparking a spiritual awakening in the Kongo. She incorporated Christianity with traditional beliefs to articulate a message of redemption for the people of the Kongo. Her movement was known as Antonianism. The movement sought to resist foreign domination and restore the greatness of the Kongo empire.
Kimpa Vita saw the Kongo as a place on biblical importance and saw Jesus and his disciples as authentically African. She was said to have possessed supernatural powers and performed miracles “kindoki.”
Her message was so powerful that it struck fear the hearts of Catholic church leaders who responded out of fear of her influence among the Kongolese people by doling out daily beatings and imprisoning her followers. Kimpa Vita was eventually charged with heresy and burned at the stake.
