Bajo de campana: Living “Under the Bell” in New Spain
December 4, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Evenings with History presented by Kristin Mann
Bells were essential communication tools in the early modern Spanish empire. This talk will consider the ways in which they communicated information to all those within the range of their peals. In particular, it will focus on what a study of bells can tell us about religious accommodation, economic connections, conflicts, and spiritual devotion in New Spain.
