SN 392 - Extirpation of Idolatries

(3.00 cr.)

Studies the practice of eliminating pre-Hispanic religious traditions in Peru and Mexico, beginning in the sixteenth century, as part of the Christianization process. Examines the religious conquest of Amerindian groups as a fragmentary process since many kept practicing activities that evoked their ancestral traditions, despite the Spanish efforts to change and even suppress them. Texts discussed include works from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by Joseph Arriaga, S.J., Pedro Calderón de la Barca, Bernardino de Sahagún, O.F.M., Cristóbal Albornoz, and Father Diego Durán.
