Abstract

Patterns of participation in the system of religious offices in Zinacantan, Mexico, changed during the 1960s. Data for 1961 show men taking successive offices with similar prestige and cost, thereby clearly marking their rank in the community. Comparable data for 1967 do not show this pattern. The change suggests that the breakdown of the system as the major rank-allocating institution in the community is underway. Analysis of differences between mobile and non-mobile men in 1967 reveals some order in the breakdown process, and illustrates a theory of individual response to social mobility.
