About the Authors
  • The Cambridge History of Religions in Latin America covers religious history in Latin America from pre-Conquest times until the present. This publication is important; first, because of the historical and contemporary centrality of religion in the life of Latin America; second, for the rapid process of religious change which the region is undergoing; and third, for the region's religious distinctiveness in global comparative terms, which contributes to its importance for debates over religion, globalization, and modernity. Reflecting recent currents of scholarship, this volume addresses the breadth of Latin American religion, including religions of the African diaspora, indigenous spiritual expressions, non-Christian traditions, new religious movements, alternative spiritualities, and secularizing tendencies.

    • Contributors include both Latin Americans as well as Latin Americanists from Europe and North America
    • Contributors include not only historians and social scientists but also religious studies scholars and cultural studies theorists
    • This volume does justice to the historical, confessional, and geographical breadth of Latin American religion
