Mestizaje : the historical, cultural and theological roots of the Filipino and Filipino-American identity

Ria B. Aquino (Author), Graduate Theological Union (Issuing body)
The United States' diverse context makes Filipino-Americans long to discover their own mestizo Filipino heritage. As faith being a central attribute to Filipino identity, how does Catholicism as expressed through Filipino popular piety inform, strengthen, and renew Filipino-Americans? This thesis attempts to explore a historical-cultural-theological definition of the Filipino-American mestizaje through the devotions and Christological expressions of the Filipino Catholic
