1) Las Casas criticism of the Catholic Church in Mexico, written in 1542. Browse sections on New Spain and Guatemala

2) The video “Brujo (Shaman);

3) The video “Flowers for Guadalupe/Flores para Guadalupe”.

You may view these videos via the UMass Boston Library. Go to Search by title and click on the link to the video. You may need to enter your last name and library barcode to Guadalupe, but you should not need that information for Brujo. If you have difficulty, please post the details to the Q ; A forum.

4) “The Virgin of Guadalupe: A Mexican National Symbol” by Eric Wolf (posted under Articles)

Choose one of the following general issues (described in the lecture notes) to discuss:

• Syncretism (the persistence of indigenous beliefs within Christianity)

Tell us which issue you have chosen and in your discussion, provide specific examples to illustrate the issue.

Why is understanding religion essential to understanding the culture and history of Mesoamerica?

In your response, you may also wish to comment briefly on your own religious inclinations (or lack of) and how they might affect your views of Catholicism or indigenous religious beliefs
