Title: Conquista y Conversión [Conquest and Conversion]
Subtitle: Universos semióticos, textualidad y legitimación de saberes en la América colonial
Edited By: Wulf Oesterreicher

Series Title: De Gruyter Pluralisierung & Autorität 37
Description:

This volume examines the symbolic systems that governed America’s integration into the European weltanschauung. These symbolic systems included Amerindian myths and religious beliefs along with the concepts of Christian belief, introduced and taught by the Europeans. As the indigenous American populations progressively assimilated, the colonialist enterprise was described and justified in historical treatises. This study presents a detailed examination of political, legal, theological, and historiographic problems associated with this process.

El volumen se ocupa de la operatividad de los órdenes semióticos tanto autóctonos como traídos de Europa en la construcción de América en el imaginario occidental. La conversión de los indígenas fue clave en el proyecto de asimilar a los pueblos nativos. Paralelamente, la empresa colonial fue descrita, representada y legitimada mediante la narración histórica. El volumen ilumina algunas parcelas de ese vasto entramado semiótico, textual y argumentativo.
