Early Printed Books on Religion from Colonial Spanish America (1543/4 - c.1800): 10. Inquisición

Early Printed Books on Religion from Colonial Spanish America (1543/4 - c.1800)
Holdings of the British Library
Printing in colonial Spanish America began early. During the colonial period, the publishing output in Spanish America was dominated by doctrinal and devotional works, confessionals, hymnals and saints’ lives. The British Library collection comprises more than 400 works from this period, the majority of which are from Mexico and Peru. Other copies of the original editions exist only in rare book libraries, which makes this collection hard to parallel in any other library in the world. This important resource is now available to scholars with interests in Spain, Spanish colonial history, Latin America, religion, and church history. The edition will also appeal to those who study or collect sources in Native American languages.

This collection is also included in the Early Printed Books on Religion from Colonial Spanish America (1543/4 - c.1800) collection.
