Re: The mission: Jesuit legacy in Latin America


I'm not sure what your thread's point is: can you explain, please?

Re: The mission: Jesuit legacy in Latin America


Just to show the Jesuit legacy in Latin America.
Please, take a sit and watch these videos. Particularly the socond of the three. They show the musical Jesuit heritage in the Indigenous missions of the Americas,

Music in the Bolivian Amazon.

Very nice photos, but I think I will pass on the movie. It has become a sort of my policy not to watch Historical movies for the simple reason that the images are so powerful that they tend to have a tendency to overshadow what I read. so it goes.

As to the Jesuits. Yes indeed. The Jesuits did very important work in the New World. But to sharpen your point a bit I'd like to say that in the case of the Franciscans and the Augustinians, the commissaries-general were the real powers, the intermediaries between the orders' headquarters within the Curia in Rome and the respective Provinces in America. At the same time, they acted as the chief links between the American Provinces of their orders and the central organs of the Castilian state. The Jesuit vicars-general were, however, mere executors, or agents, of requests coming in from the Indies. In all cases one or other of these officials was the essential lever for obtaining whatever permit was required, either from the Council of the Indies or the Casa de la Contratacion in Seville or Cadiz. Of course at a later date the Jesuits played a larger role, especially in the exploration and erecting of missions in the North America South West .

For clarity: I meant the movie not the videos. Music videos are not on my don't do list.

Re: The mission: Jesuit legacy in Latin America


I didn't post the movie "The Mission". That movie is wonderful but only an alegory of the real events that happened with the Jesuit contributions to Latin American culture.

What I posted is a report about the Guarayo native people of the Amazons, that still play barroque music, and also theirs legacy.

Re: The mission: Jesuit legacy in Latin America


What amazes me more is the number of musical scores that has been recover from colonial times. Pages after pages of musical scripts; thousand of them. Many of them made by natives themselves.

And we didn't know about it just ten years ago. This is absolutelly wonderful, I think.
