ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


Abstract: »This document provides a sociological analysis of the role that honor fulfilled as a value in the society of New Granada during the last years of the colonial period, based on some key concepts that classical authors of the discipline offer. The honor can be framed within what some authors have called social solidarity or collective conscience. That is, within the set of beliefs and values shared by the members of a society. Due to the fact that for the time studied the Spanish heritage around the honor had already achieved a high level of attachment, it is possible to think that the interest in protecting the honor was part of the common feelings in the Viceroyalty of New Granada. The fact that the notion of honor was rooted in religious values, that both the Church and the Crown promoted, linked the honor with a moral character, achieving, in this way, high dissemination within the American territory. The idea of honor determined, in a certain way, the parameters of the desired social order.« (Source: EdocUR)
