Spanish term or phrase: recepción
Por sus repercusiones amplias en disciplinas artístico-literarias, así como fuente de información para escritores de distintas épocas, cabe mencionar a algunos de esos científicos e historiadores, a modo de ejemplo, como pioneros en la *****recepción**** más o menos idealizada de Gran Canaria y los espacios sagrados de montaña en los circuitos culturales de Occidente.

Además de Cairasco, la influencia de historiadores y cronistas sobre los creadores insulares ha sido decisiva para la ****recepción**** estética de estos paisajes sagrados de montaña.

Explanation:
I hadn't come across the term before, but it appears to be just that:

Reception history
According to Harold Marcuse,[2] reception history is "the history of the meanings that have been imputed to historical events. It traces the different ways in which participants, observers, historians and other retrospective interpreters have attempted to make sense of events both as they unfolded and over time since then, to make those events meaningful for the present in which they lived and live."

There are two aspects of reception: the ways a person or event was portrayed (by the "multipliers" and makers of public opinion), and the ways those portrayals were perceived (by the populace at large). The portrayals are easiest to determine--they make up the historical record. However, we usually only have indirect indications of how those portrayals were perceived by individuals, and even more rarely how groups perceived them. Thus the latter, how groups perceive historical events over time, which is reception history in a narrower sense, is much more difficult to determine.

Abstract
Archaeological studies of the reception and representation of the past have proliferated in recent years, but theoretical and methodological work on this area is limited. The wider cultural engagement with prehistoric and ancient cultures is a long-established practice that has continued from antiquity to the present. During this time, there has been an exchange of ideas between those who have investigated ancient material remains and others who have represented aspects of the past in more creative contexts. Such representations of prehistoric and ancient worlds play an important part in generating interpretations of the past, yet we still know little about how they relate to the archaeological process of creating knowledge.

Sorry about all the bold text above, I meant to highlight the word "reception" only.

Since the art of Western antiquity has such a privileged, indeed canonical, position in European and American culture, the study of its receptions is an exploration of more recent history’s varied, competing and often ideologically understandings of its own past.
