Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
After the conquest of Mexico, colonial authorities attempted to enforce Christian beliefs among indigenous peoples--a project they envisioned as spiritual warfare. This book assesses this immense but dislocated project by examining all known efforts to obliterate native devotions of Mesoamerican origin between the 1530s and the late eighteenth century in central Mexico.
