Description
Summary:This article examines the representations of Ecuador’s Oriente and its inhabitants in the exposition organized in Rome. At this event, objects collected by the religious communities from various missionary territories throughout the world were exhibited. In the case of Ecuador, the collection came from the Apostolic Vicariate of Méndez and Gualaquiza, where the Salesians were carrying out their ministry. The sample of cultural objects on display highlights how these indigenous groups were viewed and what role the Catholic Church had been assigned to play in religious, scientific, and cultural matters.
