The following article intends to recreate, by means of studying a number of wall paintings in the churches located in the "Ruta de la Plata" (Silver route trade between Potosi mining village and Arica's port), analyzing the catechisms of the Third Council of Lima (1584), the way in which the Christianization and catechesis process took place in these locations. Based in the trilogy listened word, memorized formula, and contemplated-remembered image of the religious paintings, the research purpose is focused on detecting how that particular articulation modified or determined the remembrance that the observers made of them. In addition, it will deepen in the way the paintings were observed, and in the images that were created in memory, figuring how they gave life to a particular Christian experience for the inhabitants of this territory.
