This groundbreaking examine of the modern come across among Catholic missionaries and Aymara Indians is the 1st ethnography to concentration either at the evangelizers and the evangelized. Andrew Orta explores the pastoral shift clear of liberation theology that ruled Latin American missionization up until eventually the mid-1980s to the new "theology of inculturation," which upholds the ideals and practices of a supposedly pristine Aymara tradition as indigenous expressions of a extra common Christianity. Addressing crucial questions in cultural anthropology, spiritual stories, postcolonial reviews, and globalization reviews, Catechizing Culture is a cosmopolitan documentation of the common shift from the politics of sophistication to the politics of ethnicity and multiculturalism.
