About this product
- DescriptionReligion in New Spain presents an overview of the history of colonial religious culture and encompasses aspects of religion in the many regions of New Spain. The contributors reveal that Spanish conquest was t the end-all of indigeus culture and that the Virgin of Guadalupe was a myth-in-the-making by locals as well as foreigners. Furthermore, nuns and priests had real lives and the institutional colonial church was seldom if ever immune to political or ecomic influence. The essays, while varying in subject and content, validate the sheer pervasiveness and importance of religion in colonial Latin America while reiterating its many manifestations. We can w better understand how it was particularized by individuals, groups, and institutions because of the rich, remarkable histories found in this collection.
