Mendicant Identities and Institutes
This chapter examines the nature and essential characteristics of individual mendicant orders in New Spain. It explains what made each order unique, what they shared, and how they adapted those characteristics to the circumstances they encountered in New Spain. It discusses the mendicants' self-conscious articulation of corporate identities rooted in their traditions, histories, and theologies. This chapter also shows that the mendicants have a common identity rooted in shared vows and the balancing of contemplative duties and priestly ministries.
