Chapter Summary

Folio 46r of Codex Telleriano-Remensis may be read in terms of the fragments that compose it as well as in terms of a unity that conveys a connection between the apparently disconnected scenes. This chapter discusses the different between the missionary orders regarding evangelical practices, conceptualizations of the self, and conceptions of history. It emphasizes the formal characteristics deployed in the depiction of these orders, rather than focusing on their doctrinal differences. The chapter then examines the collection and fabrication of pictographs, and the inscription of glosses in Telleriano-Remensis. It further clarifies the difference between depiction and representation by considering cases in the history of objectivity when it behooves us to distinguish in between an album containing drawings of ideal plant and animal types, and photographs and other mechanical representations recording objects within their specific settings, along with macula and all kinds of other particularities.
