"Conversíon de Píritu (1690) de Matías Ruiz Blanco. Una obra misionera en el contexto fronterizo del oriente venezolano (siglo XVII)"

Sammendrag av avhandlingen:

This dissertation represents the first monograph on the understudied missionary text Conversión de Píritu (1690) written by the franciscan Matías Ruiz Blanco (1643–1708). The main aim is to present Ruiz Blanco as a cultural translator in his endeavor to convert to Christianity the Cumanagoto people of the Province of Píritu during the last decades of the 17th century. He made visible his efforts to adapt the Catholic faith to the indigenous languages and mentality referred by him as the key obstacles in the assimilation of Cumanagoto people to Christian lifestyle in a borderland area. His work represents the first comprehensive written account on the Cumanagoto world which comprises four books 1) a historical introduction, (2) the practice of teaching the natives the Christian doctrine and a translation of the Catholic Church’s essential sermons and sacraments into the Cumanagoto language, (3) a grammar of the Cumanagoto language, and (4) a Spanish-Cumanagoto vocabulary. My approach to this hybrid text is to present the mechanisms of cultural representation and the practices of evangelization deployed by Ruiz Blanco in the transmission of Christian concepts which often implied a resemantization of key indigenous terms. Subsequently, we find how Ruiz Blanco integrated the Cumanagoto traditions into the Christian belief system, establishing parallels that resulted in the reconceptualization of specific indigenous practices according to Western categorization of knowledge. Keywords: evangelization, transculturation, Matías Ruiz Blanco, Spanish-American borderlands, missions in Píritu (Venezuela).
