(p.1) Introduction
Religion, Society, and Culture in Colombia

Patricia Londoño-Vega

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter illustrates for Antioquia to what extent men and women of varying social groups intermingled in their daily routines, as well as the ties, frictions, prejudices, hierarchies, and distinctions that stood between them. It evaluates the factors that narrowed or widened social distances, and the customs, ideas, values, beliefs, and attitudes that mediated between the rich and the poor. In order to explore these topics, the book draws a picture of the entities, groups, and voluntary associations that flourished in those years, congregating a growing number of Antioqueños of all conditions for devotional, philanthropic, educational, and cultural purposes. It also investigates the activities developed by voluntary associations and religious communities using a great variety of sources.

Keywords:   Antioquia, social groups, social distances, religious communities, customs, ideas, values, beliefs
