About the Author

Frank Graziano is John D. MacArthur Professor, in the Department of Hispanic Studies, at Connecticut College.


"Graziano's work is an excellent, unique contribution to the study of religion in Latin America, dispelling simplistic characterizations of Latin American Catholicism." --Choice "A delightfully well-written and critical plunge into the ethnography of pious saintly devotion. The author, who is a literary critic by training, has composed a book that squarely belongs in most anthropology of religion reading lists. ...Cultures of Devotion is a major ethnography of saintly ethics in Latin America, and it should serve as a key reference on the subject for years to come." --Anthropology and Humanism "Frank Graziano's study is an important contribution to scholarly work that pays serious attention to the faith lives and practices of marginalized populations. The book will be of interest to those who are drawn to the cult of saints, Latin American religiosity, and the plethora of visual and cultural material that accompanies these devotions." --Material Religion "A highly readable, thoughtful book. Academics will invariably find it thought provoking, but it will also appeal to non-specialists and students. ...It is a sensitive, nuanced portrait of folk-saint religiosity in the late twentieth century that can help us think about what is going on beyond the documentation in kindred historical events." --The Americas "Graziano has done an excellent job describing the complexities, contradictions, and human dramas associated with devotion to folk saints in Latin America." --EIAL
