Histoire de la Mission des Pères Capucins en l’Isle de Maragnan et Terres Circonvoisines
Author: Claude d`Abbeville
Price: € 75,00  
Date: 1963     ISBN: 978-3-201-00220-2

Graz 1963. Reprint of the ed. Paris 1614. Introduction by A. Métraux (†) and J. Lafaye, 884 pp., 6 full-page ill. (woodcuts), oct., plastic cover.

Claude d’Abbeville’s work not only describes the lifestyle, religion and customs of the Tupinamba Indians on Maranbao island, in the estuary of the Amazon, but also the circumstances in which the French tried to convert and colonise the country. The description of the intellectual crisis that followed the impact of European civilisation and culture on exotic peoples in the 16th and 17th centuries is interesting from both cultural-historical, and religious, points of view.
