Abstract

En se basant sur des sources écrites européennes, cet article montre que les Groenlandais de l'Ouest des débuts de la période coloniale ne partageaient pas de définition fixe de l'au-delà, préoccupés qu'ils étaient par la réincarnation des âmes-noms et par le fait que le paradis des missionnaires était sans nourriture. On the basis of early European written sources, this paper argues that pre- and early colonial West Greenlanders did not share any definitive exploration about the realms of death, concerned as they were with the reincarnation of name-souls and with the fact that the missionaries' paradise was without food.
