Figuring Catholicism: An Ethnohistory of the Santo Nino de Cebu by Julius J. Bautista "provides an innovative and challenging reading of the cultural beliefs and practices inspired by the Philippines' most influential religious icon, the Santo Nino de Cebu. In his 'refiguring' of the Santo Nino, the author shines new light upon the nature of Catholicism both inside Asia's largest Christian nation, as well as beyond it. The study's ambitious interdisciplinary approach opens up many new and intriguing avenues for further inquiry into contemporary religious life in the Philippines."
