Orders and the Making of Urban Culture
This chapter examines the influence of the mendicant orders in shaping the urban culture in Toluca. It discusses how the mendicant institutes looked like in a local context and describes the implementation of their institutes based on community traditions, the position of diocesan clergy, and personalities of local figures. This chapter also argues that the combination of orders and their saints, pious practices, and ritual calendars helped define local religion and distinguished one city's urban culture from another's. It also highlights the prominent roles of the Franciscans and Carmelites in interorder rivalries.
