The Andean Hybrid Baroque: Convergent Cultures in the Churches of Colonial Peru (Book)
Title: The Andean Hybrid Baroque: Convergent Cultures in the Churches of Colonial Peru
Author: Gauvin Alexander Bailey
Abstract: The Andean Hybrid Baroque is the first comprehensive study of the architecture and architectural sculpture of Southern Peru in the late colonial period (1660s-1820s), an enduring and polemical subject in Latin American art history. In the southern Andes during the last century and a half of colonial rule, when the Spanish crown was losing its grip on the Americas and Amerindian groups began organizing into activist and increasingly violent political movements, a style of architectural sculpture emerged that remains one of the most vigorous and creative outcomes of the meeting of two cultures. The Andean Hybrid Baroque (also known as “Mestizo Style”), was a flourishing school of carving distinguished by its virtuoso combination of European late Renaissance and Baroque forms with Andean sacred and profane symbolism, some of it originating in the pre-Hispanic era. The Andean Hybrid Baroque found its genesis and most comprehensive iconographical expression in the architecture of Catholic churches, chapels, cloisters, and conventual buildings.

Saberes de la conversión: prácticas jesuíticas y escrituras de la alteridad en los confines coloniales (Book Section)
Title: Saberes de la conversión: prácticas jesuíticas y escrituras de la alteridad en los confines coloniales
Author: Gauvin Alexander Bailey
Editor: Guillermo Wilde
Abstract: La contribución jesuita al barroco andino hibrido. Durante el periodo colonial los jesuitas penetraron más profundamente en la América latina indígena que lo que la mayoría de las demás órdenes religiosas fue capaz de hacer o desear, trayendo con ellos un grupo más internacional de misioneros – desde polacos y bohemios hasta sicilianos y suevos – cosa que ninguna orden hizo antes de ellos. Este variopinto grupo de misioneros estableció un dialogo particularmente fructífero con las naciones nativas americanas debido a su política de adaptación a las tradiciones culturales indígenas.
