Xochimilco is an eminently Roman Catholic area; however, an ongoing process has been incorporating new churches into the borough's societal sphere. That means changes - not only in religious forms and practices, but also in relations with others, with an otherness that differs in how it conceives the world and in its social dynamics and patterns of organization. This paper analyzes the notion of tolerance from a Christian viewpoint, together with the implications of otherness from an anthropological perspective; this, together with the religious and cultural characteristics of the area in question, reveals the interreligious dynamics found in Xochimilco and the place occupied there by tolerance.
