Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1991. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. As new, unused copy in crisp, bright dust bjacket with a hint of fade to the spine. Hardcover. xv+ 488 pp. with bibliography, index. Illustrations and maps. By 1660, when the Spanish had converted the Inca Empire into a colonial society, imperial Inca religion had all but disappeared. At a regional level, however, religious beliefs and practices that had thrived for centurines continued to express pre-Inca and Inca conceptions of cosmic and social order. In this study, the author econstructs how Andean religion was understood by bthe Spanish in light of European theological and philsophical movements, and by Andean writers trying to find in it antecedents to their new Christian faith.
