Stanfield-Mazzi describes the unique features of Andean Catholicism while illustrating its connections to both Spanish and Andean cultural traditions. Based on thorough archival research combined with stunning visual analysis, Object and Apparition analyzes the range of artworks that gave visual form to Christianity in the Andes and ultimately caused the new religion to flourish.
More importantly, she demonstrates that Andeans were active agents in Catholic image-making, creating and articulating a particularly Andean version of Catholicism. Related Latin American Studies.

It has been assumed that this syncretism serves as an intermediary between people and a divine father, God.
However, history is written by the conquerors. By exploring the point of view of the conquered Andean people it becomes apparent that there was no overarching concept of divine father, and therefore no need for an intermediary.
