La aculturación como modelo de transición social: los mecanismos de la cristianización

  • F. Novoa Portela

Resumen

This communication intends to present a theoretical model which can be applied to the process of Christianization in the Iberian Peninsula. We began with the study of the processes of aculturation: external processes (changes, violent or not, of the social groups in power) and an internal process (the rise of a new social class to power). We believe that Christianity is the principal agent in the process of aculturation, and it could be considered as an internal process, except in certain regions in the North of the Peninsula where it presents an external character due to the prevalence of certain modes of pre-Roman production, and as a consequence the process of Christianization en these regions is not as rapid, nor as pacific, as once believed.
