The least village, the least Malagasy hamlet, has at least two holy places: the catholic church and the Protestant temple. It is always surprising to meet Madagascans who go regularly to the Mass of Sunday, and, in parallel are devoted to incantatory ceremonies (fijoroana), and succumb to the condition of possession (tromba or bilo). All the tombs of the ancestors are decorated with Christian crosses and, often, the festivals of the exhumations proceed in the presence of priests, who are the incarnation even of the flexibility of Christianity in Madagascar.
