A Cultural History of Santo Domingo
This book by Romeo B. Galang Jr. focuses on the buildings, paintings, and sculptures of the Santo Domingo Church in Quezon City. It also looks into the production, background, and issues arising from those 'artistic works'. It unravels the myriad ways by which expressions of a people were manifested in colonial Manila and uncovers the economics and politics that accompanied the mode of artistic production. The various manifestations of culture, as embodied in the narratives in this book, help build a history that reveals how the ecclesiastical complex of Santo Domingo characterized the intermingling of European, Latin American, Asian, and indigenous cultures.
