Colonial Mexico: Augustinian, Dominican and Franciscan Missions of the 16th Century

This collection documents the early missionary church building activity in Central Mexico, Oaxaca, and the Yucatan.

The images displayed here are a few of the thousands of catalogued digital images available by license with complete metadata. These

have been scanned from the many thousands of catalogued slides that resulted from my field work in Mexico between 1988 and 1995. The scanning

was done on a flat bed scanner using an oil immersion process for highest quality. The remainder of the slide collection is currently in

the process of being scanned. You may view catalogues by selecting the "Slides Latin America" link to the left of this text.  In addition to

documenting the buildings, I also paid close attention to the mural paintings and altar pieces, as the selection below demonstrates.

The randomly organized images displayed here have been converted from tiff format to jpeg format at reduced resolution and size.
