Aztlán and Arcadia

NYU Press

This chapter focuses on the encounter between American Protestantism and Catholicism in the celebration of California's Spanish Catholic past, with particular emphasis on how denominational relations were transformed by events in California. It also examines the efforts of Southern California's railroad boosters to memorialize the region's Spanish past and of liberal nationalists in Mexico to promote a cultural philosophy relying on indigenismo that celebrated Mexico's pre-Columbian cultures over and against their Iberian heritage. Finally, it considers how Santa Barbara, California, through a wholescale transformation of its architecture, was redefined from a city originally modeled by Americans to resemble small New England towns into a community re-created in a uniformly Spanish Revival style.

Keywords:   architecture, Protestantism, Catholicism, California, Southern California, railroad boosters, Mexico, indigenismo, Santa Barbara, Spanish Revival
