Includes bibliographical references (pages 209-219) and index.
Introduction : Iberian and French Jesuits from an international perspective -- Review of literature on the Jesuit missions to Japan and New France -- Interpreting non-Christian cultures: Jesuit biases -- Preaching, winning converts and educating them: evolving multifaceted strategies -- Organising a mission for a Christian community: missionary réductions reconsidered -- Accepting and comprehending Christianity: non-European practice of the religion -- Conclusion: the French Jesuit mission revisited.
Summary: A new interpretation of the Jesuit mission to New France is here proposed by using, for comparison and contrast, the earlier Jesuit experience in Japan. In order to present revisionist perspectives of the Jesuit missions based on a broader international framework beyond North America, the existing historical paradigms of the Jesuit missionary activity to Amerindians based on the limited regional history of New France are re-examined.
