An Indigenous Congregation at the Colegio of San Gregorio: Dowries for “Indias” and the Economy of Salvation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This essay focuses on the connective networks among Native peoples that the Jesuit Colegio of San Gregorio and the Good Death Congregation promoted. Specifically, it discusses how aspects of what the article calls the economy of salvation allowed for the strengthening of social networks among Natives in the central part of Mexico City. Through the establishing of pious works within the colegio that supported the congregation’s activities, Indigenous peoples fostered a sense of cohesiveness and bolstered their ethnic identities.
