Since its publication in 1962, Carlos Fuentes' novel, *Aura*,
remains not merely an object of academic interest but a continuous
source of controversy in Mexico. It was the explosive combination
of sex and religion that incensed the Ministro de Hacienda,
Salvador Abascal, and linked *Aura* to the recent polemical Mexican
film *El crimen del Padre Amaro*. *Aura* is preoccupied with the
place and persistence of the sacred in modern Mexico rather than
simply the secret abuses of institutional Catholicism. This
critical edition of the work is accompanied by an introduction and
notes on the text.
