BeschreibungIn the second essay, "How did Spaniards Convert Indians? Missions in the Age of Reason," Weber focuses on the Spanish missionary enterprise. Weber demonstrates that Spain's idea of an ideal mission changed between the Habsburg and Bourbon eras and, more importantly, local circumstances and local people, including Indians, determined how a mission would measure up to the Crown's ideal.
