Le prêtre et le Callínago : Les missions françaises auprès des Amérindiens des Petites Antilles au XVIIe siècle

Abstract : Christianisation of the Indians in the Lesser Antilles has to be reconsidered : surely the mission in the Caribbean Islands quickly reached a limit because of scarce funding from the religious authorities, internal quarrels between the holy orders, conflicts with the Indians and miscomprehension between the priests and the Callinagos. Despite of these bad conditions, some missionaries, especially Dominicans, extended their part, turning from clergymen into diplomats and precious advisers for the Amerindians as well as for the settlers. Therefore, their role should not be neglected during the first fifty years of the West Indian colonisation.
