about this item

Lara’s book treats Francis of Assisi and his reception in the Spanish colonial New World by employing art history, religious history, and anthropology. He creates something akin to a three-dimensional holographic picture wherein the reader can observe the continuity of the ideas that grew up around the man and follow them into the present. He deals with both eschatology and apocalyptic. While concepts of millennium and apocalypse came out of the Christian European tradition they also intersected with Amerindian concepts of epochal upheavals, ends of eras, messianic returns, cosmic catastrophes, and prophecies fulfilled.
