Sin and Confession in Colonial Peru by Regina Harrison looks closely at the implementation of the European sacrament of confession in the early modern contest of the Andes. This book examines the practice of cultural translation through analysis of Spanish ecclesiastic literature written in Quechua, the language of the Incas. Explicit in the writing of the early Spanish-Quechua tests is a desire to communicate Christian concepts to the Andean ‘heathen’; also present in these texts is abundant documentation of both cultural conversion and cultural survival.
