This fascinating academic work on the effects of Diabolism in "New Spain" covers the period from the conquistadors through the end of the 1700s. Author Fernando Cervantes writes in an easily readable manner, exploring a previously neglected area of scholarship with extensive research and precise analysis. From the early Franciscan's highly idealistic mass-baptisms to the later inquisitions and increasingly high accounts of "Indian linked demon possession", The Devil in the New World takes an in-depth look at a unique aspect of the Native-Spanish cultural interchange. 182 pages, indexed, softcover.
