LA IDEA DE LA MUERTE EN MEXICO CLAUDIO LOMNITZ PDF

But I have to get one thing off my chest before I continue. The last part of the book talked a lot about Santa Muerte. Now, to give Lomnitz some credit, this book was written when Santa Muerte was hardly known, but I do have to say that almost everything he wrote about Santa Muerte is flat out wrong. The idea that Santa Muerte comes out of Ray Pascal is just bizarre.

But I have to get one thing off my chest before I continue. The last part of the book talked a lot about Santa Muerte. Now, to give Lomnitz some credit, this book was written when Santa Muerte was hardly known, but I do have to say that almost everything he wrote about Santa Muerte is flat out wrong. The idea that Santa Muerte comes out of Ray Pascal is just bizarre. Not only does it ignore gender and placement in theological realms but it really just zooms past Well over all it was a good book.

Not only does it ignore gender and placement in theological realms but it really just zooms past the giant Virgin de Guadelupe devotion that has contributed so much imagery to Santa Muerte In fact, the entire book Lomnitz did not address devotionals or the Virgin. I feel as though this is shoddy workmanship no matter when he wrote this. There is a strong and visible history of the Red devotional candle being used for these sorts of issues and to harp on the drug aspect of Santa Muerte is basically to give into media hype.

Rather than being a jealous saint, most people tend to view her as the ultimate form of intercession on your behalf to God. In this way, Santa Muerte aids other saints, but does not get upset. Fortunately, Santa Muerte was not the whole book, but it did make me question it. Over all though, I thought the history of Day of the Dead and the Mexican views on death were fascinating. I think this book could have easily have been several times longer, and still not run out of fascinating stuff to say.
