Niniejszy artykuł poświęcony jest chrześcijańskiej działalności misyjnej wśród Indian Ameryki Północnej w wieku XVII. Punktem wyjścia rozważań jest – słabo naświetlony w literaturze przedmiotu, a bardzo interesujący w aspekcie rywalizacji międzywyznaniowej – fakt spotkania w Wigilię roku 1650 w Roxbury (Nowa Anglia) francuskiego jezuity o. Gabriela Druillettes’a i purytańskiego pastora Johna Eliota. Obu uważano za sztandarowe postaci katolickiej i protestanckiej akcji misyjnej. Przedmiotem szczegółowego opisu jest aktywność J. Eliota, nazywanego „apostołem Indian”. Motywacje, program działań, metody i rezultaty aktywności J. Eliota przedstawione zostały na tle duchowości purytańskiej i skonfrontowane z akcją jego katolickich rywali. Głównie jednak uwaga została skupiona na kaznodziejskiej, translatorskiej i organizacyjnej płaszczyźnie działań Eliota oraz ocenie ich rezultatów w kontekście tzw. wojny króla Filipa (1675-1676).

The present article is dedicated to Christian missionary activities among the Indians of North America in the seventeenth century. The starting point for this consideration is – poorly exposed in the literature, and very interesting in terms of inter-profession rivalry – the event of meeting on Christmas Eve 1650 in Roxbury (New England) of the French Jesuit Father Gabriel Druillettes and the Puritan preacher John Eliot. They were both considered as the flagship of Catholic and Protestant missionary activity. The subject of a detailed description is J. Eliot’s activity who was called “the apostle of Indian.” The motivations, the programme of activities, methods, and results of J. Eliot’s activity – were presented against the Puritan spirituality and confronted with the action of the Catholic rivals. Mainly, however, attention has been focused on preaching, translating and organizational level of Eliot’s activities as well as on the evaluation of the results in the context of the so-called King Philip’s War (1675-1676).
