This chapter examines the modifications in policies, methodology, and objectives of idolatry eradicators in Nahua communities in Central Mexico during the period from 1571 to 1662. It analyzes the career of important secular extirpators in the region which include Pedro Ponce de León, Hernando Ruiz de Alarcón, and Jacinto de la Serna. It provides a contextual analysis of the Nahua ritual genre called nahualtocaitl and discusses indigenous use of several plants with hallucinogenic effects and Nahua hybrid healing practices.
