Lecture, “The Poetics of Representation in Viceregal Peru: A Walk Round the Cloister of San Agustín in Lima

501 Cathedral of Learning

Abstract: In the early seventeenth century, the Andean painter Basilio Pacheco painted a cycle of images depicting the life of Saint Augustine for the cloister of San Agustín in Lima. Many of the episodes depicted are easily recognizable for any reader of Augustine's Confessions. Other episodes are legendary, and were incorporated into his biography during the Middle Ages. In this talk, I discuss the message that will have been conveyed by these remarkable images in their New World setting, and for the friars who were walking through their cloister day by day.
