Cultures shift by absorbing outside influences and dealing

Europeans gradually changed their view of the world.
Missionaries propagated their religion and had to learn how
to approach those whom they wanted to convert. Non-Europeans
adapted European ideas and used them in their own social

Calderon’s plays in Nahuatl or the Brazilians who created a
new popular culture. This volume contains many interesting
contributions of this kind and highlights cultural history
