Abstract
The study of religious architecture in the north of New Spain has not yet been deep enough to be able to identify its characteristics, its influences, its appropriations and its exchanges within and outside this region. The reconstruction of the temple of the old Jesuit mission of Tamazula (1777-1813), located in the western highlands of the diocese of Durango, is an exceptional opportunity to increase the knowledge of religious architecture within the north of New Spain, due to the vast historical documentation located recently in the diocesan archive. In addition, this complex constructive enterprise reflects part of the political and economic interests of the inhabitants of Tamazula, as well as the diocesan authorities.
El estudio de la arquitectura religiosa en el norte de la Nueva España no se ha profundizado lo suficiente para poder identificar sus características, influencias, apropiaciones e intercambios dentro y fuera de esta región. La reconstrucción del templo de la antigua misión jesuita de Tamazula (1777- 1813), ubicado en la serranía occidental del obispado de Durango, es una oportunidad excepcional para acrecentar el conocimiento de la arquitectura religiosa dentro del septentrión novohispano, debido a la vasta documentación histórica localizada recientemente en el archivo diocesano. Además, esta compleja empresa constructiva refleja parte de los intereses políticos y económicos que tuvieron los habitantes de Tamazula, así como, las auto ridades diocesanas.
