Resumen del Libro:
This interdisciplinary study looks at how gender roles are sustained on the basis of corporeality using as reference testimonial material generated by petitions for divorces and marriage annulments during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries in Lima. To that end, this analysis has been based on documents petitioning divorces and marriage annulments found at the Archbishops Archives in Lima. Such material was selected with the aim of capturing the ideal scenario for gender relations in conflictive situations where individuals expressed their need to resolve their lives, and of showing how these relations, institutional power, and fear act as leitmotifs that reveal the mentality of the time. These texts have been approached as horrified accounts that bring out a discourse rich in details on the private life where the body is a key theme.
