Three Jehovah’s Witnesses members preaching and handing out the Watch Tower Society literature to the public at the Pietermaritzburg City Hall. Jehovah’s Witnesses is a restorationist millenarian Christian religious movement. Sociologists of religion have classified the group as an Adventist sect. The group emerged from the Bible Student Movement, founded in the late 19th century by Charles Taze Russell, with the creation of the Watch Tower Society. It underwent significant organizational changes between 1917 and the 1940s, having its authority structure centralized and its preaching methods brought under greater regimentation. The religion today claims an active worldwide membership of approximately 7 million people.
