Abstract

REVIEWS SILVA GONÇALVES, Nuno da, Os Jesuítas e a Missão de Cabo Verde (1604- 1642), Lisbon, Brotéria, 1996, 450 pp., 972 9076 09 X Whereas the early Portuguese Jesuit missions to America and Asia had notable successes, hence generating vast modem historiographies, the missions to the other new world, that of Black Africa, were failures, at least relatively, and have been little studied or written about. The mission to East Africa in the 1560s collapsed in a colonial disaster. The mission to Angola, begun in the 1570s, struggled on for many decades and did give pioneering attention to the local Bantu languages, but otherwise was remarkable only as the initial involvement of Jesuit mis- sionaries in a slave-producing society. The mission to West Africa, known at the time as the 'Cape Verde mission' because it dealt only with the Cape Verde Islands and western Guinea, had a notional life of some forty years, 1604-1642, but achieved little in the long run. Father Nuno da Silva Goncalves SJ. has now produced, from Rome and Lisbon, a lengthy, careful and useful, if slightly bland, history of the Cape Verde mission. Publication of his study has happened to coincide with that
