5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure to read, 9 Nov 2007
By 
This review is from: The Cross and the Serpent: Religious Represssion and Resurgence in Colonial Peru (Hardcover)
This book reflects great insight into the complex interplay of indigenous beliefs and Christianity in colonial Peru. Griffiths repeatedly illustrates the intense struggle between pre-Columbian beliefs and Iberian Catholicism, and suggests the degree to which the former was able to survive and the latter had to adapt. In short, the imposition of Christianity was much more limited than has traditionally been thought. A pleasure to read as it is tautly organized and gracefully written.
