Abstract:

"Fray Bernardino de Sahagun, best known as the most important source for information on precolonial and colonial Nahuas (Aztecs), is generally recognized as an anthropologist, a humanist, and a practitioner of modern scientific methods. In Sahagun and the Transition to Modernity, Walden Browne paints a strikingly different picture of the sixteenth-century Franciscan Fray Sahagun - as a product of his times rather than as a precursor of the modern era. Browne argues that Sahagun's work actually signals the disintegration of medieval ways of knowing in the crisis-ridden missionary environment of New Spain more than four hundred years ago."--BOOK JACKET.
