For The Good Of Their Souls
Performing Christianity In Eighteenth-Century Mohawk Country
de William B. Hart
Sobre o livro
Using the lens of performance theory to explain the ways in which Mohawks considered converting and participating in Christian rituals, William Hart contends that Mohawks who prayed, sang hymns, submitted to baptism, took communion, and acquired literacy did so to protect their nation's sovereignty, serve their communities, and reinvent themselves.
