Book Description

July 1 1996 Cultures, Beliefs, and Traditions, (Book 2)
This work provides a cultural interpretation of the overall impact of the Catholic Reformation in Europe on the changing facets of the religious life in the indigenous communities of southern Mexico, during the 16th and 17th centuries. It studies the modes by which Spanish mendicant priests translated norms, standards and mores enforced by the Tridentine dogma into the far-removed contexts of the New World. Using both Spanish and Maya colonial sources, the book examines Dominican preaching, local cosmology and the state of faith in the area, as well as the changing ritual practices that emerged within the Indian parish during this era. It also illustrates how the Indians adopted, transformed or rebuffed the Catholic notions impressed upon them in the process of religious conversion.

Product Description

Review

'This book should naturally prove of greatest interest to historians of colonial Central America and historians of missions, for whom it should prove quite useful, [...] even enlightening owing to its wealth of details, and its firm anchoring in primary sources. Historians of the Catholic Reformation, too, might want to dive into this rich collection...' Carlos M.N. Eire, Church History, 1999.
