Transcript of AP World - Syncretism

Religious Syncretism Roman Catholicism Roman Catholicism Cont. Into the Americas The Conversion Some Distinctive Roman Catholic Beliefs So in the end ... Some religions emerged as a result of religious syncretism. Religious syncretism takes place when foreign beliefs are introduced to an indigenous belief system and the two teachings are blended. The newly formed religion then takes a shape of its own. Although it didn’t begin at a specific point in history like the Protestant denominations, in its long history Roman Catholicism has evolved into a distinctive branch of Christianity.

Majority religion in Spain, Italy, and nearly all Latin American countries Catholics observe seven sacraments, which are religious rituals believed to be commanded by God and effective in conferring grace on the believer.
The Catholic liturgy tends to be more
formal and ritualized than its Protestant counterparts In 1493, Pope Alexander VI divided the lands of Columbus's discoveries in the Americas in half between two Portugal and Spain, both of which were Catholic countries. In return, Spain and Portugal had responsibility to convert inhabitants of the land from their animistic religions to Catholicism. Some of the natives converted to Catholicism peacefully, and some did not. Many priests suffered and died believing it was their duty to "bring the Word of God to the
people of the New World." The flexibility and inclusiveness of Mesoamerican/Andean religions made it possible for native people to accommodate the gods of their new rulers while maintaining their own traditions . . . Sikhism (Hinduism & Islam)

inspiration of the Bible, etc. Yay for power. Aztecs, Mayans, Incas, etc. The old practices of the Natives could not be completely eliminated. Instead, they integrated Catholic teachings into their old beliefs and the new belief system flourished When the cultures and religions collided in the sixteenth-century, the result was not complete conversion/disappearance of the native religions. Modern descendants of the Aztecs & Incas continue to practice beliefs from their traditional religions.
