Brides of Christ : conventual life in colonial Mexico by Asunción Lavrín( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brides of Christ invites the modern reader to follow the histories of colonial Mexican nuns inside the cloisters where they pursued a religious vocation or sought shelter from the world. Asuncion Lavrin provides a complete overview of conventional life, including the early signs of vocation, the decision to enter a convent, profession, spiritual guidelines and devotional practices, governance, ceremonials, relations with male authorities and confessors, living arrangements, servants, sickness, and death rituals. Individual chapters deal with issues such as sexuality and the challenges to chastity in the cloisters and the little-known subject of the nuns' own writings as expressions of their spirituality. The foundations of convents for indigenous women receives special attention, because such religious communities existed nowhere else in the Spanish empire."--BOOK JACKET

Des Indes occidentales à l'Amérique Latine( )

in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De part et d'autre de l'Atlantique, deux mondes longtemps unis sous l'autorité d'une même couronne, qu'elle soit espagnole ou portugaise, ont fini par se séparer au début du xixesiècle. Les Indes occidentales sont alors devenues l'Amérique latine mais les héritages préhispaniques et coloniaux n'ont pas cessé d'influencer les paysages urbains, les sociétés rurales et les mentalités collectives du monde latino-américain. Réunies pour rendre hommage au professeur Jean-Pierre Berthe, les quarante-six contributions présentées ici veulent donner de ce vaste ensemble, hétérogène sur le plan politique mais cohérent sur le plan culturel, une vision dynamique fondée sur la prise en compte de la longue durée. Le regard croisé d'historiens, de géographes, de sociologues, d'ethnologues et de linguistes permet de varier les approches scientifiques et de comparer des problématiques de recherche qui dépassent le cadre du continent américain pour s'intéresser aux relations entretenues par la métropole avec ses colonies. Dans cette perspective, l'imaginaire et les représentations symboliques ont autant d'importance que les réalités de la vie quotidienne, les luttes pour l'exercice du pouvoir ou l'évolution des pratiques économiques. Plus qu'un simple volume d'hommages, ce livre est donc un outil de recherche qui offre au lecteur curieux mille sujets de réflexion, aussi bien dans le domaine de l'histoire économique et sociale que dans celui de l'ethnohistoire ou de la géographie historique
