BATTCOCK, Clementina. Garcilaso and Olivia: two views, two readings of the war between Incas and Chancas. Latinoamérica [online]. 2011, n.52, pp.53-70. ISSN 1665-8574.
This paper comparatively analyzes the works of the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega and the Jesuit Giovanni Anello Oliva, particularly the version they provide on the war between the Incas and the Chancas. Traditionally, both writers have been attributed the same interpretation of this conflict and the coincidence about who was the Inca that carried out this conflict and emerged victorious, ie Viracocha Inca. Therefore, our proposal resides in the careful revision of the commonalities in both works and the analysis of where their stories differ on the transcendental facts for the consolidation of the Tawantinsuyu in the central Andes.
