Example text

Rather than relying exclusively on textual and visual models of classical virtues as was customary, Don Carlos used the Aztec rulers as examples. In this manner the Teatro elevated local antiquity to the universal status of Greek and Roman classical antiquity. In other worlds, it cosmopolized a regional history. Further, it suggested that the viceroy, the representative of the Spanish king in the Spanish dominions, should learn the arts of government from local and not exclusively European examples.

Rather than being mutually exclusive in late seventeenth-century New Spain, patriotism, here taken to mean affirmation and appreciation of the local, was intricately bound with demonstrations of allegiance. 19 These attitudes did not prevent him from lauding the Spanish government and sometimes representing himself as a Spaniard. In my analysis Sigüenza’s Teatro exemplifies a cosmopolitanism rooted in local traditions and values. The work displayed this cosmopolitanism through the synthesis of European and indigenous sources in an attempt to negotiate the power relations that these traditions implied and to visualize an ideal Creole nation.

The Renaissance triumphal arches developed from the medieval scaffold, a kind of stage erected for dramatic performances on religious and secular occasions. The medieval idea for these constructions was to express religious morality through images. Renaissance triumphal arches and monumental architecture generally expressed secular ideals. In the arches the individual honored was compared to a classical hero in paintings, sculpture, and decorations. 49 During the reign of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, classical and biblical themes were joined to produce an image of the Christian prince as described by Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam in his book Education of a Christian Prince (1516).
