Religion, especially Roman Catholicism, has played a significant role in social and political life throughout Peruvian modern history. Catholicism was introduced in Peru in the 16th century by Spanish missionaries.
Who brought Catholicism to Peru?
Catholicism was introduced by the regular clergy at the same pace as the conquest, and by 1550 Dominicans, Franciscans, Mercedarians, Augustinians and Jesuits were all active in Peru. The Incas continued to revolt against the Spanish conquest, leading full-scale rebellions as late as 1814, all without success.
