Abstract
  • Court cases, wills, and letters are common examples of surviving primary texts from colonial Latin America. These documents are important to historians because they provide a unique glimpse into the lives of ordinary people who lived hundreds of years ago. This thesis is a recreation of these types of primary documents. The examples presented are completely fictional, but all of the themes, motifs, and details have been extensively researched by reading primary texts and translations. Woven within these fictional documents is a narrative that represents the real struggles and issues that colonial Latin Americans faced in their lives. Themes present in these documents will include honor, love, marriage, piety and more. The goal of this thesis is to create an accurate picture of life and death in colonial Latin America, while also exploring some aspects of human nature that will always be relevant.
