    ABSTRACT: Colonial Mexico's economy experienced a long phase of growth during the eighteenth century. Around 1800, silver exports and fiscal surplus remittances from the colony rose to unprecedented levels. We study the contribution of the Spanish imperial state's policy to the expansion of silver production and the leading role of mining in economic growth and its fiscal implications. We find evidence to support a more favourable view of both the mining sector and the imperial state than that commonly presented in the literature. The interruption of colonial ‘mining-led growth’ helps to explain the ‘lost decades’ for the economic development of Mexico after independence.

    ABSTRACT: This work examines the relationship between social history and the history of the Church and religiosity taking New Spain as an example. More than an exhaustive analysis, we have focused on the dominant trends during the last two decades of the 20th century and during the first one of this century. The Social History of New Spain has largely been influenced by French, English or American historiography. Research on the Church in Mexico was not professionalized until the beginning of the 20th century. During the last decade, innovative studies have been written, which, starting from ecclesiastical institutions, have focused more on social issues and religious mentality. Thus, historiography on the Church and religiosity has significantly advanced in two aspects: in the social and political analysis of ecclesiastical institutions and their members, and in the study of religious culture and popular religiosity.
