59. Toussaint, Colonial Art , pp. 275-277. [BACK]

60. The full story of Hispanic-American architecture lies beyond the scope of this book; what concerns us, however, are those church structures built specifically for other remote native populations in the Americas that provide parallels with the churches built later in New Mexico. [BACK]

61. Wethey, Colonial Architecture , p. 18. The churches that were supposedly built on the model of the Gesú in Rome actually displayed a greater affinity for Gothic and Renaissance prototypes. "The truth is that the Jesuit order never officially adopted a specific type of floorplan in Peru or anywhere else" (p. 18). [BACK]

62. Kubler, Mexican Architecture , pp. 105-106. Kubler confirmed that "the vast official documentation for the colony contains almost no reference to drawings prepared in Spain for American use" (p. 105). [BACK]

63. For the definitive presentation and analysis of the atrio and the development of related Mexican religious architecture, see McAndrew, The Open-Air Churches ; and Toussaint, Colonial Art , pp. 25-31, 57. [BACK]
