LOPEZ MERAZ, Óscar Fernando. Memory, Experience and Body in Sixteenth-Century Franciscan Chronicles: The Construction of the Mesoamerican Natural. Hist. graf [online]. 2020, n.54, pp.13-52.  Epub 30-Maio-2020. ISSN 1405-0927.

The chronicles of the conquest of America have been revalued as historical sources in recent decades, and this text follows that revisionism to interpret and identify in Western memory-experience communion the key to descriptions of the Mesoamerican natural. It is argued that the body is the axis of the narration about the other in two axes: one related to the friars as witnesses who could not communicate their experience away from the canon produced by the cultural framework to which the indigenous it is described, for incorporation into the salvation history, as a subject historically constituted as close to the Christian worldview, even in passages where documents are constructed with the participation of indigenous informants.
