D’un discours à l’autre. Concurrences rhétoriques et rapports interreligieux en Haute-Volta coloniale

Abstract : By evoking the case of the Upper-Volta (Burkina Faso today), a multidenominational territory par excellence, this article tries to analyse the interreligious relations through the study of the discourses. The rhetorics of competition are obviously asserting themselves. Used by religious leaders, they crystallize around some thematics among which the denomination chronology, the nationality of the proselyte agent, the links with the African societies or the colonial factor appear as the most important. You then discover a three voices chorus – catholic, muslim and protestant – who is searching to position on the scale of legitimacy in “the sharing of the souls”. Despite their competitive rhetorics, a discourse of the consensus is emerging within “the community of believers”. This one does not seem to render the denominational difference a factor of division but rather an application of a common ideology.
