A Penitente Bibliography by Marta Weigle
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"A Penitente Bibliography" is the definitive reference work on the Brotherhood in Hispanic northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. Based on research begun in the late 1960s, it is the companion supplement to Marta Weigle's revised 1971 dissertation, "Brothers of Light, Brothers of Blood: The Penitentes of the Southwest." The 1233 annotated entries were assembled over five years through August 1975. They are divided into five sections entitled Documents; General and Comparative References; Books and Other Published Materials; Anonymous Newspaper Items; and Dissertations, Theses, Student Papers, and Unpublished Manuscripts. This compilation remains an important resource for anyone working in Southwest studies, religion, or folklore. Marta Weigle has taught anthropology, English, and American studies at the University of New Mexico since 1972. Currently a University Regents Professor in the Anthropology Department, she has chaired that department and the Department of American Studies. After completing her doctoral work, Weigle edited "Hispanic Villages of Northern New Mexico: A Reprint of Volume II of The 1935 Tewa Basin Study, with Supplementary Materials" (The Lightning Tree, Jene Lyon, Publisher, 1975). For it she compiled an annotated bibliography of over 600 entries that was also published separately. In 2005 she received the inaugural State Historian's Award for Excellence in New Mexico Heritage Scholarship from the Cultural Properties Review Committee and the State Historic Preservation Division, Department of Cultural Affairs.
