ACOSTA, Antonio. CHURCH, ECONOMIC INTERESTS AND THEOLOGY OF DOMINATION: CONTRADICTIONS IN EVANGELISM OF SPANISH AMERICA. PERU, XVI CENTURY. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2016, n.49, pp.409-422. ISSN 0719-2681. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812016000100036.
Abstract: The current research attempts to show, based on documented cases, the insurmountable contradictions that shook the Catholic Church during the first stage of evangelization of the colonial Peru during the sixteenth century. On one hand, the clash between the interests that prevailed in dominating indigenous societies and exploiting its economic resources: workforce, products, metals, etc. and secondly, the objective of evangelizing the natives. This contradiction can be observed in particular in the work of the first Archbishop of Lima Geronimo de Loaysa, who, beyond his pastoral function aimed at indigenous, began to manage an errand extracting higher work quotas for fruitful personal business. Revealing this particular fact is that the economic interests of the church crossed decisively with the exercise of his pastoral work, seriously limiting in terms of coverage of the clergy and the relationship with parishioners, also affecting the transmission of the doctrine to the Indians.
