Synopsis: Book by Weigle, Marta

Review: Marta Weigle's definitive study of the Penitentes from their beginnings through the mid-twentieth century, draws upon documentary sources and contemporary materials to show their substantial contributions (acts of charity, supervision of wakes and funerals, religious observances) the Brotherhood made to community survival and spiritual life on an isolated frontier. The Penitentes appropriated orthodox forms of worship and adapted them into vital, significant religious and social expressions. Their rites, says Dr. Weigle, not only provided the setting for personal religious experiences, but also served to consecrate and confirm communal ties. Dr. Weigle explores the early history of the Penitentes, theories about their origins, and their relationship to historical and ecclesiastical developments in New Mexico. Dr. Weigle examines rumors and facts about the political role of the Penitente chapters and provides a detailed study of Penitente organizations and activities (their councils, moradas, membership, rules, officers, and religious rituals). Most important, Dr. Weigle places the Brotherhood's rituals of penance into perspective within a religious and anthropological framework. Brothers Of Light, Brothers Of Blood: The Penitentes Of The Southwest is the most complete and best documented book to date on the Penitentes. Brothers Of Light, Brothers Of Blood is a fascinating, superbly document, well written work that deserves its place in any academic or ecclesiastical Christian Studies library shelf. -- Midwest Book Review
