ISBN: 9781570756795
These carefully selected documents on the religions of Latin America begin with the arrival of Columbus and the existence and shape of indigenous religions at the time. This documentary history of nearly six hundred years includes Catholicism, Protestantism, Pentecostalism, Candomblé and Umbanda, Judaism, and the religions indigenous to Latin America.
The selection of documents underscores the realities of imperialism, racism, poverty, and injustice. Introductory material precedes each of the twenty-two divisions and each selection to give readers a historical perspective.Penyak & Petry, eds.
