Question based off the book "The Hold Life Has" Catherine J Allen
According to Allen, the Runa have integrated the Catholic Saints into their religious cosmology. What role do the saints have?
They invented all the skills necessary to human life (ex: spinning, weaving, cooking, plowing) and "teach" them to the Runa.
They watch, judge and punish the Runa for immoral and improper behavior.
They live in hanan pacha (loosely, "heaven") and are generally indifferent to the Runa even though they ultimately control the Runa's fate.
They nurture and provide sustenance to the Runa and aid their well being.
They try to trick the Runa into sinning, so that the Runa will be sent to hell when they die.
I think the answer is the first one but I'm not sure. Please help!
