Ruiz de Alarcn, Hernando (1581-1639):
Treatise on the Heathen Supersititions That Today Live Among the Indians Native to this New Spain, 1629 - First edition

2006, ISBN: 9780806118321

ID: 266014059

xxvii+406 pages with frontispiece and 7 other illustrations, map, appendices, bibliography, and glossaries. Small quarto (10 1/4" x 7 1/4") issued in orange cloth with white vignettes and dark brown lettering to spine. Translated and edited by J Richard Andrews and Ross Hassig. From the library of George M Foster. The Civilization of the American Indians, series, volume 164. 1st edition into English. The Treatise of Hernando Ruiz de Alarcon is one of the most important surviving documents of early colonial Mexico. It was written in 1629 as an aid to Roman Catholic churchmen in their efforts to root out the vestiges of pre-Columbian Aztec religious beliefs and practices. For the student of Aztec religion and culture it is a valuable though until now sometimes obscure source of information. Hernando Ruiz de Alarco was born in Taxco, Guerrero, Mexico, in the latter part of the sixteenth century. He attended the University of Mexico and later took holy orders. Sometime after he was assigned to the parish of Atenango, he began writing the Treatise for his fellow priests and church superiors to use as a guide in suppressing native "heresy." With great care and attention to detail Ruiz de Alarcon collected and recorded Aztec religious practices and incantations that had survived a century of Spanish domination (sometimes in his zeal extracting information form his informants through force and guile). He wrote down the incantations in Nahuatl and translated them into Spanish for his readers. He recorded rites for such everyday activities as woodcutting, traveling, hunting, fishing, farming, harvesting, fortune-telling, lovemaking and curing of many diseases, from toothache to scorpion stings. Although Ruiz de Alarcon was scornful of native medical practices, we know now that in many aspects of medicine the Aztec curers were far ahead of their European counterparts. In this significant edition of the Treatise, J Richard Andrews and Ross Hassig have provide a new translation of the extant manuscript (in the Museo Nacion de anthropologia, in Mexico City), corrected the author's sometimes flawed Nahuatl, and provided a new, emended translation. They have added notes to clarify grammatical problems, obscure meanings, and other difficulties of the text. For students of Nahuatl they have supplied valuable information on the structure of the language and its linguistic conventions.George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition: Foster's stamp on front end paper and half title. Jacket spine sunned darkened, closed tear at head hinge. A very good to fine copy in like jacket., University of Oklahoma Press, 1984
