Rate this:
Verastique explores Quiroga's evangelising project in its cultural and historical context, recreating the complex worldviews of the native Purhepecha and the Spaniards at the time of their first encounter. With Quiroga as a focal point, the author traces the uneasy process of assimilation and resistance that occurred on both sides as the Spaniards established political and religious dominance. He describes the fusions between Christianity and indigenous beliefs and practices that arose among the Purhapecha and relates these to similar developments in other regions of Mexico.
