Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Abstract The Christianization of Timor-Leste results from the Portuguese missionary presence since the 16th century. However, it was a Japanese invasion, during the Second World War, and later in Indonesia, in the process of decolonization, which marked, by the experience of resistance and identification, the centrality of Catholicism as a central reference for the populations as processes of adherence, protection and relief, giving form to the most extensive evangelization and the organization of the Catholic Church as it is today.
