Religion in the Andes
Vision and Imagination in Early Colonial Peru
Sabine MacCormack

With a new afterword by the author


Addressing problems of objectivity and authenticity, Sabine MacCormack reconstructs how Andean religion was understood by the Spanish in light of seventeenth-century European theological and philosophical movements, and by Andean writers trying to find in it antecedents to their new Christian faith.
