Using published sources from the 19th Century and early 20th Century, as well as recent historiography on the period, this article explores the cultural and social transformations that rapid modernisation brought to social life in post-colonial Lima. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of religion in women’s lives, and the transformations of representations about the adequate use of public spaces for them in turn-of-the-century Lima. Then racial and social relations were redefined along with the expansion of the Nation-State, and the dissemination of the European “scientific racism.
