Volume 49. Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, The Martyr of the Sacrament, Saint Hermenegildo

Library ServicesIndiana, 49

Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, El mártir del Sacramento, San Hermenegildo, ed. Ignacio Arellano and Robin Ann Rice.
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert 2019.
ISBN: 978-84-9192-052-6

El mártir del Sacramento is one of the three autos sacramentales by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, along with El divino Narciso and El cetro de José. In it, Sister Juana adapts the figure of Saint Hermenegild, whom she constructs with complete dramatic freedom with respect to the historical sources - often opposed in her evaluationof the Visigothic prince - and turns him into a religious hero at the centre of a complex set of ideas and feelings that brings together motifs of martyrdom, vanitas, reflection on the fleeting nature of worldly glories, political and family conflicts with King Leovigild, disillusionment and resignation to divine designs.

The present edition offers the most reliable text to date, accompanied by a complete apparatus of notes and a preliminary study that attempts to situate the auto in its generic frameworkand to facilitate the understanding of modern readers, avoiding the frequent critical fantasies that have often diverted the reading of this play.

Volume 48. The Inca Garcilaso in his Golden Age

Library ServicesIndiana, 48

The Inca Garcilaso in his Golden AgeFernandoRodríguez Mansilla
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 978-84-9192-052-6

Contrary to the usual colonial programs of study, El Inca Garcilaso en su Siglo de Oro analyses the figure and work of the historian from Cuzco in the context of the culture and historiographical tradition of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spain. In this way, this study illuminates neglected aspects of Garcilaso's texts, qualifies conventional assertions and proposes, in short, a reading of Garcilaso de la Vega as an intellectual integrated into the trends and debates that were taking place in the Aurisecular period. Subjects such as Neoplatonism, comicality, pauperism, Gothic myth, genealogy and the constitution of an intellectual degree programare examined in a new light as part of Inca Garcilaso's writing. Through a philological perspective, which incorporates neo-historicist and sociological features, El Inca Garcilaso en su Siglo de Oro dialogues with the contemporary Garcilasian critical tradition and revises some of its postulates to propose a reading closer to the reception that the texts of the Inca Garcilaso deserved in his time.

Catalina Andrango-Walker
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 978-84-16922-90-1

This volume on the Símbolo católico indiano ( 1598) by the Franciscan Creole Luis Jerónimo de Oré (Huamanga, 1554-La Concepción, 1630) raises the need to study this work not only as a text that fostered the expansion of Catholicism in the Andean region, but also as an early questioning of the imperial constructions of American otherness linked to the scientific and philosophical knowledgeof the 16th century, thus laying the groundwork instructionsfor the speechcriollo that would take shape in the following decades.

Encounters and disagreements with the imperial frontier.
The church of the Society of Jesus in Quito and the mission statementin the Amazon (17th century).

Edited by Carmen Fernández-Salvador
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 978-84-16922-61-1

In the light of local hagiography (sacred oratory, missionary narratives and the histories of religious provinces), this book analyses the early iconographic programme of the church of the Society of Jesus in Quito, executed in the second half of the seventeenth century, in relation to the Jesuit missionary projectin the Amazon. In it, in constructing its genealogy, the still young order appealed to the authority of biblical figures to legitimise its apostolic antiquity. The reliefs with scenes from the life of Samson and Joseph, which are located in the spandrels of the arches in the central nave, and the canvases of the prophets that adorn its pillars, form a coherent iconographic programme based on the concordance between the Old and New Testaments, or between the past and the present, based on the relationship between prophecy and its fulfilment. The images exalt the virtuous figures of the Old Testament, heroes and martyrs who proclaim the life of Jesus Christ and his disciples, as well as the apostolic zeal of the religious of the Society of Jesus. In the case of the canvases of the prophets, the secondary scenes showing them as preachers and martyrs were in dialogue with stories and sermons extolling the unique virtue of the missionaries at Mainas, and with images of their martyrdom adorning the corridors of high school. In its relationship with the hagiography of Quito, the iconographic programme of the church of the Society of Jesus contributed to the construction of a local patriotism. The decoration of the Quiteño church was also related to missionary narratives and images of martyrdom that circulated on an international scale, arousing comparisons between the experience in the Amazon and that of other religious in places as remote and foreign as China and Japan.

Colonial epic poetry of the 16th century. History, theory and internship

Colonial epic poetry of the 16th century. History, theory and internship
Edited by Raúl Marrero-Fente
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 978-84-16922-34-5

This book offers the most extensive study of sixteenth-century colonial epic poetry published to date. This poetic genre of medieval tradition is renewed during the conquest with a repertoire of tropes and rhetorical motifs that assimilate the new American reality to the European poetic tradition, along with the inclusion of vocabulary from the indigenous American languages. The poems also offer an imperial vision, in keeping with colonial expansion, and sing of events in other regions of the Spanish empire, in Africa, Asia and Europe, alongside those that took place in the New World.

The work investigates the ontological status of the epic within the critical speechfrom a approachthat submits to revision the preconceived ideas on the question in the theoretical developmentof the colonial programs of study.

Raúl Marrero-Fente is Full Professor of Hispanic Literatures and Law at the University of Minnesota, and associate member of the group de research Siglo de Oro (GRISO) of the University of Navarra and of the Centro de programs of study de la América Colonial (CEAC) of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Palafoxian and Puebla Miscellany
Edited by Ricardo Fernández Gracia
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 978-84-8489-977-8

Nine programs of studymake up the volume that has as its protagonist the bishop-viceroy Don Juan de Palafox, in his activity as a man of State and Church, and which is in tune with the artistic, cultural and religious promotion of the great men of his time. With the exception of the first article, which presents us with the young and experienced councillor of the Indies explaining to the king, in a rich report, his views on the conflict with France, the rest of this miscellany refers to aspects related to his beloved Raquel, the diocese of Puebla de los Ángeles, both in specific actions in favour of culture and the arts, and in his facet of government in New Spain. In the latter, he corresponded with people who were particularly knowledgeable about what was happening in New Spain and further afield, such as the Philippines. His information networks, as unpublished documents come to light, attract the most powerful attention and highlight the value of his figure in this subjectof skill.

The passage of the Buenamuerte through Lima. The rise and fall of a religious sugar order in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The passage of the Buenamuerte through Lima. The rise and fall of a religious sugar order in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Edited by Pablo F. Luna
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 978-84- 8489-949- 5

El tránsito de la Buenamuerte por Lima examines the evolution of the Order of St. Camillus in the Peruvian capital between the 18th and 19th centuries. After locating its initial establishment in Barrios Altos, the author studies the agricultural establishment of the order and its sugar plantations in Cañete, its success and expansion, but also its internal crisis and subsequent decline. At the beginning of the Republic, the institution of the cruciferous fathers was twice suppressed and twice re-established, in the context of the State's unstable policy towards the Peruvian clergy and the Peruvian Church. This is an original historical research, based on archival documentation, which suggests comparative approaches and calls for similar work on other institutions.

Thanks to previous surveys and especially with the availability of new documentary masses for researchers, it is possible to think that the convents, monasteries and parishes of Peru contain a wealth of archives of the first order, the systematic exploitation of which by historians would shed light on Peruvian society from the end of the Ancien Régime. It can be deduced from this the existence of documentary deposits and historical sources which, in the image of the presence of the Catholic Church in Peru, would have a wide scope, i.e. societal, economic, financial, institutional and religious.

Pablo F. Luna is a historian, professor at the Université Paris-Sorbonne and researcherat the Centre de Recherches Historiques (CRH-EHESS- CNRS, UMR 8558, Paris). His research topics at researchfocus on property, Economicsand exchanges in the rural world (17th-19th centuries). He has published several works in Europe and America on these issues.

Volume 42. Reflections on Courtly Writing

Library ServicesIndiana, 42

Reflections on courtly writing
Edited by Beatriz Aracil Varón
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 978-84-8489-956-3

This book offers a comprehensive study of courtly writing in order to shed light on the process of construction of the self that Hernán Cortés carries out throughout his own speech. Without avoiding dialogue with other texts of the period, but focusing on the corpus of courtly documents, the study covers a whole range of relationships that delimit the narrative subject, such as the link between the self and the writing itself, the author's position with respect to History, his problematic relationship with the Emperor Charles V, his perception of the indigenous people and his link to the new territory. The aim is to highlight the peculiar way in which this controversial figure, who throughout his life manifested a real obsession with the written word, sought to portray himself.

These pages summarise a global reflection on texts such as the Letters of Relation to Charles V, which allowed Captain Hernán Cortés to enter history, thanks to his particular characterisation of both himself and his conquest project. With these courtly writings, the Western reader had, for the first time, news of a great American civilisation, and this news came to him at first hand, written by the man who was the protagonist of the exceptional feat of findingand the future conquest of the "marvellous" Aztec empire.

Volume 41. The Wondrous Life of Death

Library ServicesIndiana, 41

Joaquín Bolaños, La portentosa Vida de la Muerte(Joaquín Bolaños, The Portentous Life of Death)
Edited by Trinidad Barrera with the partnershipby Jaime J. Martínez
ISBN: 9788484899358

The portentous Life of the Death of the Franciscan Joaquín de Bolaños first appeared in Mexico in 1792. Since then it was not published again until 1983, in a facsimile edition, also in Mexico. This work has an openly declared didactic-doctrinal purpose, as it deals with the story of Death, whose life trajectory is recounted from his cradle to his end, including his testament, as if he were any mortal. However, this is a character whose actions are so many and so extensive that it is impossible to cover them in the dimensions of the book, which is why she is portrayed partially, choosing specific moments of her actions and composure from Antiquity to the century of essayof the work.

Death is queen and mistress of the work: death foreseen, Petrarchan death, sovereign death, memento mori, vision of tombs and catafalques... In short, death full of nuances that are collected in this text and that drags a whole symbolism that goes back to the Age averageand reaches the moment in which Bolaños writes his moralising notice. One more piece in the enthronement and importance of the topicof death for the Mexican people.

This careful edition, profusely annotated, is preceded by an extensive introductory study by Trinidad Barrera, Professor of Spanish-American Literature at the University of Seville, in partnershipwith Dr. Jaime J. Martínez, of the UNED.

Volume 40. Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa Sumaria relación

Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa Sumaria relación
study and edition by Joaquín Zuleta Carrandi
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 9788484898894

In 1581, the Crown of Spain set out on one of the most ambitious defensive projects of its time: the fortification of the Strait of Magellan. To this end, Philip II ordered the preparation, in the ports of Seville and Cadiz, of a fleet of 23 ships and almost 2,000 people at positionunder General Diego Flores de Valdés. The Sumaria relación is the reportwritten by the governor of the Strait of Magellan, Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa, about this unhappy expedition, whose survivors founded the Ciudad del rey don Felipe on the shores of the strait, a town that would go down in history as Puerto del Hambre (Port of Hunger). Sarmiento alleges that the failure of the defensive projectwas not due to bad fortune or the hostility of the southern seas, but to the negligence and greed of General Diego Flores de Valdés and his officers. 

In this edition, Joaquín Zuleta Carrandi provides a complete and detailed preliminary study in which he includes a biographical account of Sarmiento de Gamboa from his arrival in the Indies to the appearance of Francis Drake off the coast of Peru, one of the reasons that led to the attempt to fortify the strait. A general historical introduction and a textual study of the Relación follow, framing the edition, which is accompanied by an extensive critical apparatus with a profusion of notes. The volume closes with practical indexes and glossaries of characters cited in the text, place names and notes, a catalogue of the ships of the expedition and a chronology. 

Joaquín Zuleta Carrandi, graduatein Literature from the University of Chile and PhD in Literature from the University of Navarra, is currently Professor of Colonial Spanish-American Literature at the Universidad de los Andes (Santiago, Chile).

A theatrical festival in 17th century New Granada
Edited by Hugo Hernán Ramírez
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 978-84-8489-827-6

Seventeenth-century theatre in Spain and Latin America, as a spectacle, could consist of a festive stage ensemble made up of several parts not written by the same author. This book brings together a representation of the baptism of Christ, two songs, two romances, a gypsy dance, the texts of a poetic competition, a "famous auto" and some comments from the audience who attended a performance that may have been held in 1636 near the city of Villa de Leyva, in present-day Colombia. All in all, a complete golden festive programme, testimony to the way in which the logic of Hispanic theatre of the golden period developed in a territory to which theatre critics and historians do not usually pay attention.

Hugo Hernán Ramírez is a professor at the Universidad de los Andes (Colombia), member of the groupof research"programs of studyInterdisciplinarios sobre Renacimiento y Barroco", and director of the departmentof Humanitiesand Literature at the same university.

Miranda, Luis de, Romance
Edited by Silvia Tieffemberg
ISBN: 978-84-8489-832-0

The so-called Romance or Romance elegiac, composed around 1540 by member of the clergyLuis de Miranda, is in fact a composition of 136 broken-foot octosyllabic verses, organised in quatrains of consonant chained rhyme. Miranda arrived in the Río de la Plata in 1536 in the armada of Pedro de Mendoza and his poem, considered the first River Plate literary composition, describes the hardship, hunger, anthropophagy and death of that first unfortunate settlement in the region. We do not possess the original of the Romance, which is preserved copied at the end of a mid-16th century document, and although it has received eighteen editions since the end of the 18th century, the present edition is the first critical edition of it, together with the complete text of the documents sent by Francisco Ortiz de Vergara to committeede Indias, at the end of one of which it is included. This edition also includes, as a documentary appendix, the letter sent by Miranda himself to the king in 1545, giving an account of the events that took place a year earlier when the clashes between loyalists and commoners put an end to the authority of Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca.

Silvia Tieffemberg, professor, BA and PhD in Literature from the University of Buenos Aires, is a professor at the same university and a researcher at the committeeNacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas.

Bramón, Francisco, Los Sirgueros de la Virgen sin original pecado (The Servants of the Virgin without Original Sin)
Edited by Trinidad Barrera
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 978-84-8489-780-4

When Francisco Bramón published the pastoral novel Los Sirgueros de la Virgen sin original pecado ( Mexico, 1620), New Spain already had another illustrious precedent in the genre: Siglo de Oro en las selvas de Erífile ( 1608) by Bernardo de Balbuena.

However, the intentionality of the two works is very different, since it would not be wrong to say that Bramón's novel is the only divinised pastoral novel in Novo-Hispanic literature; at least none other is known to date. In Bramón's case, the shepherds who roam the "Mexican gardens" are devout defenders of the "immaculate conception" of Mary, and the whole novel, which takes place in the days leading up to the celebration of the Immaculate Conception, revolves around this theme, which was highly topical at the time. This is the first time that the novel has been published in its entirety.

Trinidad Barrera is Professor of Spanish-American Literature at the University of Seville. She has been president of the associationEspañola de programs of studyLiterarios Hispanoamericanos. A specialist in colonial literature, she is the author of two editions of Naufragios and Brevísima relación de la destrucción de las Indias, as well as the book, Asedios a la literatura colonial(2008).

Global Trajectories: programs of studyColonials in the Hispanic World
Edited by Raúl Marrero-Fente
ISBN: 978-84-8489-731-6

This book proposes a revision of the study of the origins of the Spanish empire in the 16th century from a global perspective. The central thesis of this researchis that in order to understand the colonial history of Spanish America in all its complexity, it is necessary to examine in detail the process of trans-oceanic and global exchangebetween different geographical regions of the world that took place in the 16th century. The Spanish empire was global in its extension and scope because it inaugurated routes of contact, exchangeand communication between distant areas of the globe: Europe, Africa, America and Asia.

Space and time of festivities in New Spain (1665-1760)
Edited by Judith Farré
Madrid/Frankfurt am Main, Iberoamericana/Vervuert
ISBN: 978-84-8489-728-6

The book presents an analysis of the fiesta in New Spain, in the final years of the Baroque, as a form of theatricalisation of urban space, extraordinary and ephemeral by definition. The time frame frameworkruns from the reign of Charles II to 1760, the year in which Agustín de Ahumada y Villalón, Marquis of Las Amarillas and the last of the viceroys appointed by Philip V, left position. It was a time marked by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and other stellar figures such as Carlos de Sigüenza y Góngora. These were also crucial years in the configuration and developmentof a literary culture already fully marked by the rise of the creole consciousness. It was a period, moreover, in which the pomp and circumstance responded to the spectacular nature of the Baroque, which imbued everything with an overflowing theatricality. From this convention of the festive, the book focuses on the relationship between theatre and power in New Spain and includes a critical edition of several allusive texts.

Judith Farré Vidal, PhD from the University of Lleida, has been a lecturer at the high schoolTecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico, and a member of Conacyt's National System of Researchers (2003-2008).

The preacher's tales. Stories and fictions for the reform of customs in New Spain.
Edited by Manuel Pérez
ISBN: 978-84-8489-580-0

Complete analysis of "Luz de verdades católicas", a book of great diffusion in New Spain. The study of its exemplary stories is followed by a rhetorical analysis that also addresses its role as a culture-creating instrument.

Luz de verdades católicas is a book of "talks" which, although it is now fairly unknown, is one of the most widely read religious works from the end of the 17th century to the beginning of the 19th century. In fact, in the Historia de la provincia de la Compañía [...], by Francisco Javier Alegre, it is said to have had more editions than any other Mexican book.
For the study of the exemplary stories used in this collection of talks, a rigorous rhetorical analysis has been followed, which has allowed not only their reading in a persuasive context but also their consideration as instruments forging culture and citizenship. A complete study of exemplary argumentation implies, in addition to the consideration of the instruments for the illustration of doctrine, the formulation of hypotheses about their articulation to fulfil diverse social, cultural and even political functions, in the sense in which the pieces of humble oratory tend to function.

Alonso de Góngora Marmolejo, Historia de todas las cosas que han acaecido en el reino de Chile y de los que lo han gobernado (History of all the things that have happened in the kingdom of Chile and of those who have governed it).
Edited by M. Donoso Rodríguez
ISBN: 978-84-8489-508-4

This is the first critical edition of the original manuscript text of this early chronicle of the conquest of Chile, which constitutes a fundamental milestone in the scarce literature of that country during the 16th century. Alonso de Góngora Marmolejo was a privileged witness to the most important events that took place between the Spaniards and the Indians during the founding years of the Kingdom of Chile, from the arrival of Pedro de Valdivia in 1541 until 1575. The text is accompanied by numerous notes that explain its various aspects and also includes a complete glossary of the characters involved in the events described in the chronicle and two useful indexes that allow us to trace all the words and indigenous expressions noted throughout its pages.

Berg, H. van den, With the Yuracarees (Bolivia). Missionary Chronicles (1765-1825)
Edited by A. Eichmann
ISBN: 978-84-8489-528-2

This book presents the experience of the "meeting" of two worlds, the indigenous and the western, in a concrete space (the Yuracarees Mountains) and in a limited period of time: from the first formal contactof the two until the year in which Bolivia began to bear that name to initiate its republican period. Drawing on a vast mass of documents from European and American archives, the author deals with all the "re-constructions of the history of the evangelisation of the Yuracarées" that took place from the 18th century to very recent years. He analyses numerous and varied texts written by civil servants, ecclesiastics of the time, naturalists of the late 18th and 19th centuries, and historians and ethnologists of the 19th and 20th centuries, offering in each case keys to the interpretation of these "re-constructions" and correcting them if necessary.

Volume 21. Parnassus of two worlds. On Spanish and Latin American literature in the Golden Age.

Parnassus of Two Worlds. On Spanish and Latin American Literature in the Golden Age
Edition by Ferri Coll, J. M. and J. C. Rovira
ISBN: 978-84-8489-507-7

Parnassus of Two Worlds is a collection of works on the literature of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, taking into account the new cultural, political, social and economic context that the finding had been weaving. The work of American writers has been studied; or writers of Spanish origin who had developed their literary activity in the new territories of the Monarchy; or on the contrary: those who, having seen the light of day in America, had become fond of literature in Spain. All of them shared a new reality that had little to do with the one existing before 1492. In this sense, works and authors, aesthetic currents and ideological principles are analysed in the light of the idea that the findingof what is foreign also represents the revision of what is one's own and at the same time its enrichment.

Taken as a whole, the programs of studypages in this book aim to provide a picture of the cultural and literary relations between America and Spain during the 16th and 17th centuries, a time when the synthesis of pre-Columbian, Creole and European elements that took place in the New World was the foundation of a literature that increasingly took on a breath of its own.
