Religions of the Americas Series
Davíd Carrasco, Charles Long, and Lindsay Jones, Series Editors
This series—which focuses attention on passages, rims, and borders—is dedicated to a study of the religions of the Americas since the commencement of the Atlantic world with the voyages of Columbus and the Great Encuentro that followed. The Americas, from this perspective, constitute multiple “contact zones”—that is, places where disparate cultures confront, clash, and exchange meanings, goods, and services. The series is devoted to understanding the dynamic histories, religious practices, and cultural patterns generated by these contact zones throughout North America, Mesoamerica, and South America.
