Diasporic Christ: Cristo Negro and Esquipula Venerations from Chimayó to Manila
Please note, this event has expired.
This presentation looks at how popular Latino religious traditions in New Mexico are at once local and global, and have their origins in the global transfer of religious iconography and ceremonial practices in the Spanish colonial and post-colonial world. It will show how such practices moved across continents on the Caminos Reales or the inland Royal Roads and across oceans on routes as the famous Manila Galleon trade network.
A. Gabriel Meléndez is Professor and former Chair of the DepartmentView more
