PEREZ MORALES, Edgardo. MATERIAL LIFE, RELIGIOSITY, AND COLONIAL SOCIETY: SPACES, OBJECTS, AND CONSUMPTION PRACTICES IN THE JESUIT COLLEGE OF THE CITY OF ANTIOQUIA, 1726-1767. hist.crit. [online]. 2009, n.38, pp. 70-95. ISSN 0121-1617.
This article explores the history of material life in the Jesuit College of the City of Antioquia, New Kingdom of Granada, during the eighteenth century. By linking urban and rural consumption practices on Jesuit estates with the patterns of everyday life and social hierarchies, this article argues that objects and spaces were consumed and used according to the Catholic religiosity and the political and spiritual hierarchy that characterized the colonial social order. This framework gave meaning to material life, but the limits it imposed on consumption practices could be transgressed in certain circumstances.
