Synopsis

Como parte integra de la campana espiritual realizada en la Nueva Espana, el teatro misionero sirvio fines catequisticos y didacticos que resultaron en interpretaciones unicas de historias de indole biblica y en atractivos enfoques del dogma cristiano. Contra el telon de fondo de encuentros culturales entre el Nuevo y el Viejo Mundo, el rico legado de dramas indioamericanos del siglo dieciseis se examina en relacion con la iconografia religiosa de la epoca y la prosa testimonial de cronistas e historiadores. Esta obra ofrece nuevas perspectivas sobre el teatro evangelico y muestra como la fusion de las tradiciones dramaticas europeas e indias refleja el caracter de las empresas apostolicas.As an integral component of the spiritual campaign undertaken in New Spain, missionary theatre was used for catechistic and didactic purposes that resulted in unique interpretations of biblical-inspired histories and engaging artistic approaches to understanding the tenets of Christianity.

Against the backdrop of cultural encounters between the Old World and the New, the rich legacy of sixteenth-century Indian-American plays is examined in relation to religious iconography of the period and testimonial accounts of chroniclers and historians. This book offers new perspectives on evangelical theatre and shows how the fusion of European and native-American dramatic traditions reflected the ethos of colonization and early apostolic endeavors.
