Martyrs et héros : le théâtre des missions catholiques françaises en Corée dans les premières années du XXeme siècle Contribution à la recherche en ethnoscénologie

Abstract : This dissertation examines the similarity and dissimilarity between European Theatrical pattern introduced to Korea through Japan, and MEP French Catholic missionaries’ theatrical practices who came to evangelize the country. After reconstructing the political and cultural context of the time marked by the Japanese occupation and westernization of Korea, we present and analyze a novel corpus found in the archives of the Catholic Church in Seoul. The set consists of two types of manuscripts and duplicated texts: small fragments of shows played at the Yongsan seminar in Seoul from 1912 to 1920 and a play which was written in Latin by Emile Devred (1877-1926) a French missionary in honor of one of the most Korean famous martyrs and first priest, Father Andrew Kim: Acta et Gesta Venerabilis Andreas Kim. In addition to the Latin version we found two translated adaptations of this play, written in Korean and Sino-Korean characters, according to the custom of the early 20th century in Korea, and a third version published in serial form in Kyeong Hyang (1921-1922), an important Catholic magazine in Seoul. The study of dramatic work is complemented by the analysis of an article on the Korean Catholic Church’s particular point of view on theater (1917). The thisis contributes to highlight misunderstandings at work in acculturation.
