Religious Culture in Modern Mexico
February 1, 2007
In Religious Culture in Modern Mexico, Martin Austin Nesvig explores the complexity of religiosity in Mexico in the context of an increasingly secular state. Nesvig demonstrates the multifaceted role or religion by illuminating the ways in which religion and religious devotion have persisted and changed since Mexican independence in 1821. This edited volume selects essays which place a particular focus on popular religion and its relationship to politics, as well as on the role of local religions in Mexico.
