Presented By: Rob Martínez, Assistant State Historian
Sacramental Lives of Indios, Castas, and Españoles in the Indies
In this presentation, Assistant State Historian Rob Martínez will show what Catholic priests looked for when administering sacraments in colonies such as New Mexico in the 1700s, such as baptism and marriage, as well as the types of obstacles faced in such places. What those rituals looked like will be examined, along with descriptions of what a priest should do when encountering esoteric behaviors, such as love magic and sorcery.
