Item Description...
This book is an extraordinarily rich account of the social, political, cultural, and religious relationships between parish priests and their parishioners in colonial Mexico. It thus explores a wide range of issues, from competing interpretations of religious dogma and beliefs, to questions of practical ethics and daily behavior, to the texture of social and authority relations in rural communities, to how all these things changed over time and over place, and in relation to reforms instigated by the state.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Magistrates of the Sacred Sets a New Standard  Jan 20, 2002
This book allows readers to see a significant segment of the history of religion in Mexico as never before. William B. Taylor's research into the lives of priests, natives and mestizo parishoners in 18th century Mexico presents a largely innovative and exciting understanding of religious change, church authority and the primordial power of Catholic ritual in the lives of all three. It also reveals the intense and ongoing negotiations for who would interpret sacred space, religious experience and Christian identity during these years of change and continuity in Mexico. Especially valuable for students of syncretism, cultural change and Indian religious identity is the excellent chapter three on religious change and ritual transformations brought about by Indians and priests.
By the way, this book won several of the most prestigious history prizes given by historians.
