Abstract

Taking as a starting point the most recent trends of European religious historiography, which focused in these last few years on the relationship between confession and Inquisition, this contribution intends to underline the capital importance achieved even in the New World by the sacramental confession in the religious conquest of the native population. In effect, not so much attention was paid so far to the role of confession in the concrete strategies of evangelisation carried out by the religious orders, and by the Jesuits in particular, above all in the framework of the "idolatries' hunt". Through several narrative sources the particular vision of the complementarity between itinerant missions and the judicial and coercive instruments of the Colonial Church are analysed.
