Summary

In 1955, in the Peruvian Andes, a syncretic religious movement appeared under the name “israelitas movement”. The prophet Ezequiel Ataucusi Gamonal, after visions, proposed to his adepts a belief based on a new compilation of the Ten Commandments. His utopia consists in restoring the Israel people in Peru.
