This book is a provisional essay, followed by a vocabulary and an index, on the Tagalogs world view in the Sixteenth Century. It is mainly based on the entries of the earliest dictionaries of the Tagalog language. These were written by Spanish lexicographers about half-a-century after the conquest of the Philippines (Cebu 1565, Manila 1571). Additional data are drawn from Spanish chronicles. Many of the recorded beliefs and customs were already obsolete at the turn of the Seventeenth Century. Some are extremely surprising, starting from the primeval myth according to which the world had no solid land at its beginning, but only two fluids, water and air.

English summary: Following years of preparation, the author of the standard work The History of Christianity in Latin America (1978) here presents a perfectly new concept of his seminal textbook, which unfolds in a compact format the sum of a lifetime of research in this field.Hans-Juergen Prien's extensive teaching and research as Chair for Iberian and Latin American History (established by Richard Konetzke) has put him in a position to demonstrate the embeddedness of the history of the church in Latin America - as far as this is feasible within the framework of the Monographs on the History of the Church - in the main political, social, and economic developments of this subcontinent.The comprehensive list of sources and the bibliography attest to the fact that by now it has become almost impossible for a single scholar to acquire a firm command of the entire history of the denominationally extremely diverse Christianity of an entire subcontinent, spanning five hundred years. German description: Der Autor des Standardwerkes aDie Geschichte des Christentums in Lateinamerika (1978) legt nach langjahrigen Vorarbeiten in vollig neuer Konzeption ein Lehrbuch zum Christentum in Lateinamerika vor, das in kurzer Form die Summe seines Forscherlebens auf diesem Gebiet darstellt. Priens Lehrtatigkeit auf dem von Richard Konetzke begruendeten Lehrstuhl fuer Iberische und Lateinamerikanische Geschichte hat seinen Uberblick ueber die Politische Geschichte, Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte Lateinamerikas wesentlich erweitert, so dass er die Einbettung der Kirchengeschichte in diese Gebiete immer wieder zu verdeutlichen versucht, soweit das im Rahmen der Reihe aKirchengeschichte in Einzeldarstellungen moglich ist. Das umfangreiche Quellen- und Literaturverzeichnis zeigt, dass es heute fuer einen einzelnen Forscher kaum noch moglich ist, die konfessionell stark zerklueftete Christentumsgeschichte eines ganzen Subkontinents ueber fuenf Jahrhunderte hinweg zu ueberblicken.
