dc.description.abstractMain aim of this thesis is to look at the procedure of crosscultural work by Catholic missionaries. From mission lands, we know cultural destruction as well as cultural adaption. The thesis will discuss interculturation from a theological and an artistic view with the example of Nias, Indonesia. Nias lets us observe an advanced level of interculturation yet staying stricly within Roman Catholic regulations.Examples from different artforms, particularely music, will show problems and chances: by all insufficiency detected, individual missionaries on Nias contribute to the preservation of artforms.
