Religion in New Spain

Full Product Description

Religion 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 not the end-all of indigenous 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 economic 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 now better understand how it was particularized by individuals, groups, and institutions because of the rich, remarkable histories found in this collection.

Religion in New Spain was published by University of New Mexico Press in July 2015. The ISBN for Religion in New Spain is 9780826339799.
