Rehabilitating Human Sacrifice in a Christian Context



The Liturgy Symposium Series is presented by the Institute of Sacred Music. The series features liturgical scholars and practitioners selected by the chair of the Program on Liturgical Studies, Bryan Spinks. The talk focuses on the role of Christ’s passion in the liturgical imagination at the moment when Christianity first met the peoples of the New World (and vice versa), specifically, the indigenous cultures of central Mexico.
