The Republic of Sudan is a country in Northeast Africa. It was the largest nation in Africa before the secession of South Sudan in 2011, and still remains the third largest nation in land mass. The majority-‘Christian’ South Sudan broke away from the Islamic rule of Sudan after a 21 year civil war.
Much like Egypt, Christianity was strong in the Nubian kingdom during the early centuries after Christ. Islam finally conquered the region in 1484 AD. In modern times, Sudan suffered under 30 years of military dictatorship and strict Islamic rule. However, in 2020, the new transitional government removed Sharia Law from Sudan’s constitution, resulting in greater religious freedom.
