What People are Saying About This
". . . an informed and highly informative accounting and analysis of concepts of sin . . . and of the long-term ‘encounter’ between these traditions as Europeans first conquered the Inka Empire and then struggled to gain control over Andean people’s bodies, minds, and souls during early to mid-colonial times in the Andes. It is a book with a large and ambitious scope that demonstrates extraordinarily deep learning and close engagement with a range of highly esoteric texts from the period."
