Abstract

DOMINGUES, Beatriz Helena. The guarani jesuitic missions in the context of Enlightenment. História [online]. 2006, vol.25, n.1, pp. 44-69. ISSN 1980-4369.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-90742006000100003.

This article compares three eighteenth century evaluations about jesuitic missions among the Guaranis - Relação abbreviada da republica, que os religiosos jesuitas estabelecerão no Paraguai, by Marquis of Pombal, Candide, by Voltaire, and O Uraguay, by Basílio da Gama - pointing out their similarities and singularities in terms of their personal motivations, literary styles and nationality - Portuguese, French and Brazilian, respectively.

Keywords : Voltaire; Pombal; Basílio da Gama; eighteenth century jesuits.
