Catholicism and its coexistence with other religious practices are described through selected texts in Part II, which range from colonial examples, such as a Franciscan’s letter to the king of Spain describing Spaniards’ abuses of Indians, through to contemporary descriptions of black communities’ understanding of the sacred as found in the natural world. Also included are an interview with an elder in Bogotá’s Sephardic Jewish community; the novelist Albalucia Ángel’s re-creation of the way a quotidian, devotional Catholicism shaped her childhood during a violent moment in Colombian history; and an extract from the writings of Camilo Torres, who advocated revolution.
