The author focuses on Fernando de Avendaño, a parish priest, extirpator of ido la tries and canon of the Lima cathedral in the seventeenth century, who is an example of how the Catholic Church, among other institutions, exerted power in colonial Peru. Through the analysis of his Sermones de Nuestra Santa Fe Católica ... (1649) the ideology of the Avendaño is perceived not just in the stark contrast between Spanish values and beliefs and those of he Indians, but also in the use he made of rhetoric in constructíng his sermons. This reveals a specific use of rhetorical devices that rejlect and are coherent with his position in the colonial system, and thus became a special part of Avendaño's ideology. Starting with faith, Avendaño built a rhetorical construct dedicated to proving the superiority of the Catholic religion over that of the Indians, in what may be regarded as a "domination theology".
