Editorial Reviews

Review

"This outstanding study of religious life in Spanish St. Augustine during the years 1670-1763 will surprise many. Employing original records from Spanish archives, the author shows that the principal authorities of church and state were almost constantly engaged in contentious struggles. And at fault was the very structure of Spanish colonial life. This illuminating and most readable book belongs on every Florida history shelf." - Michael Gannon, Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of History, University of Florida"

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By John Raboin on May 18, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This was a very enjoyable history book, and certainly one of the best books I have every read on Florida history. Though it is filled with facts and dates, it is also full of stories that make colonial St. Augustine come alive. It was also helpful that each chapter is a little story of it's own which relates to the whole book, but can be read separately. Best of all, the Spanish Inquisition makes an appearance, and nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.

A BRILLIANT READ!!!! Easily the most exceptional book on religion, power, and politics in Colonial St. Augustine from the Florida Museum of Natural History. I found it gripping from front page to last. The way St. Augustine came alive, it was like i was really there. This is a must buy for anyone who finds American history thrilling. Genius! Robert L. Kapitzke is one of the most well versed authors of our time.

This is an important book for any re-enactor or tour guide who speaks about St. Augustine for a living. This book should be required reading for any tour guide.
