Muerte y conversión en los Andes: Lima y Cuzco, 1532-1670

by Gabriela Ramos

A study of how conversion to Catholicism took place in Andean populations, from the specific point of view of changing attitudes toward death. This research focuses on transformations in the religious arena--how and why a significant number of members in a society modifies their vision and their attitudes about the sacred. The inhabitants of the Andes in the 16th century did not have the option to choose to Christianity. Rather, men and women of all levels were ordered to be baptized and to comply with many other religious requirements. In Spanish.
