Summary:
The relationship between architecture and literature is the main objective of this book. The 17th century is a turning point for the consolidation and promotion of the Baroque architecture in Viceroyal New Spain and this study of Cuesta Hernández "was produced from an anthropological history of art view, and follows the concept that artistic objects are considered as primarily human and therefore historical objects (political, religious, functional and ideological) analyzable only in the context of the history of culture, for which they contributed with their specific construction of a "culture of images", and not only as a the production of a history of art as autonomous succession of artistic objects, without any connection with their different contexts."
