More Description

A thoroughly documented history of the Penitente Brotherhood in N.M. and Colo. through the mid-20th cent. Theories about their origins, relationship to historical and ecclesiastical developments, political and social roles. Details of Brotherhood organization and religious rituals as crucial to Hispanic community survival. Weigle is Professor of American Studies and Anthropology at the University of New Mexico. Out-of-print for several years, this book appears in paperback for the first time.

"Weigle's study will probably stand as the definitive work for some time to come. ... Her careful scholarship and respect for the Penitentes informs the work throughout" -- Library Journal
