Directoires et catéchismes missionnaires en Océanie au XIXème siècle : une pédagogie de l'évangélisation.

Abstract : In the 19th century, during the pioneer phase of evangelisation in Oceania, the first vicars apostolic wrote handbooks of evangelisation for their missionaries. They relied mainly on their experience and on the various instructions of the Propaganda Fide. These texts teach us therefore that it has existed pedagogy of evangelisation in order to unify the methods and pastoral in the same vicariate. It appears that the process of evangelisation is carried out in two stages. The first one is the insertion according to St Paul's theory : to be " totally to all" first by practicing a spirituality of selflessness to live better with the natives, learn their language and adopt their ways of life. The second step is the inculturation of Christianity in the local culture, using the cosmogony of the inhabitants and by means of indigenous catechists. We propose to call this process " epagologic process ", from the Greek word "to convert ".
