Die Entzauberung der Dämonen im Peru des 18. Jahrhunderts vor dem Hintergrund des ›Dialogs‹ zwischen andinen religiösen Spezialisten und Jesuiten im 17. Jahrhundert

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In order to understand the introduction of enlightenment thought in colonial Peru, we should know about the ›dialogue‹ between indigenous religious specialists and the Jesuits during the seventeenth century; a ›dialogue‹ that concentrated on godly and preternatural thus demonic interventions in the world. As this article shows, in the late eighteenth century Cosme Bueno deconstructed alleged activities by the demons with reference to Athanasius Kircher and the principles of technical magic.
