(p.619) Chapter 30 Inca Historical Forms
The Oxford History of Historical Writing

Catherine Julien

Oxford University Press

This chapter takes Inca historical forms as a starting point and examines the creative interplay between these and European-introduced forms. Spanish narratives and other writings take centre stage after Spanish dominance was established, but other European modes of representation, including theatrical performance and painting, were important to the formation of Inca memory. After defining Inca forms of history, the chapter identifies the key characteristics of three main historical moments corresponding to the ‘short sixteenth century’, the ‘long seventeenth century’, and the ‘eighteenth century’.

Keywords:   Incas, historical forms, European forms, Spanish narratives, Inca memory
