About the Author

Richard C. Trexler was Distinguished Professor of History at the State University of New York, Binghamton.


An original and innovative work, this fascinating account traces the history of Iztapalapa's annual reconstruction of Jesus' passion, in which you can see Mexico's past and present intersect with a vital piece, in fact a founding moment, of Christian history. Trexler notes that the play is strongly representative of a people that has no place within the power structures of Mexican society, and signifies, in many interesting ways, the struggles of these people with both the Catholic Church and the Mexican state. -- Peter Sigal, California State University, Los Angeles
The nuanced analysis of a large-scale religious ritual, under the probing scrutiny of a seasoned historian, provides one of the most fruitful entries into the social fabric of a community...[T]his is an intriguing tale relayed by a master story-teller of a public celebration that continues to enact the most basic needs and deep-seated desires of its community. -- Jeanette Favrot Peterson * Hispanic American Historical Review *
