Evangelización franciscana en Araucanía:El catecismo de Serviliano Orbanel


The Doctrina cristiana, catecismo, forma de administrar los sacramentos con 22 pláticas en araucano by Fray Serviliano araucano Orbanel (circa 1778) whose manuscript is in the Mitre Museum Archive (CABA), is an unpublished document that we make available to the public. This manuscript belonging to the Franciscan Order was a sort of manual to evangelize the Mapuche people in the eighteenth century in their own language. Those catechetical texts in mapuzungun, Spanish and Latin helped the missionary to transmit the doctrine, administer the sacraments, preach and teach prayers. The catechism by Fray Orbanel is one of the few texts of the Franciscan order of these features, as mostly belong to the Society of Jesus, jesuits, source of much of the bilingual catechisms circulated during colonial and national evangelization
