A Handbook on Guadaloupe  Apr 9, 2008
The book arrived qiuckly and in perfect condition. Thank you for such good service
A Great Primer on Guadalupe  Aug 4, 2004
This is a perfect primer for those interested in investigating the legacy of "La Morenita" (The Little Dark [virgin]). It covers just about everything: from the history leading up to the apparitions, the people involved, the symbology of image and the apparition, scientific examiniations, miracles associate to the image, and even the societal/theological/spiritual impacts of the apparition and image.
I found it highly accessible, as have others to whom I have given a copy of this book, but this may vary by reader.

Even if you do not believe in the mystical relationship of the "myth" it provides a good counterview for further study and a means to calibrate for our own biases in deciding what the whole event means to us.
And for those who do believe, it will greatly enrich your understanding/appreciate of a truly amazing event. I even used it as a reference for a novel (Thy Will Be Done).
A readable, in-depth resource  Mar 5, 2004
This book does a wonderful job of bringing together a very readable collection of articles (by scholars, scientists and theologians) on the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe and its history.
It was put together by the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in order to create an accessible source of information about Our Lady of Guadalupe: there is background historical information on both Spain and the Aztec Empire, on the miracle itself and the people involved in it (including information about the historical research on this, for those who are interested), on fascinating scientific studies on the tilma (such as discussion of the incredible fact that the image was imprinted on a "tilma", rough clothing material worn by the Aztecs, made from reed fibers, which disintegrates within a couple of decades, and yet it is still in perfect condition today!), theology on it, and more.
I definetely recommend it for anyone interested in any of those topics.
People please open your eyes!  Oct 31, 2003
The Lady of Guadalupe was a Spanish invention used to calm down the indigenous revolts against the Conquistadores. There are even published letters from the time of the Conquista where the intentions of "Creating a local Myth" are clearly mentioned.

The Conquistadores had noticed that indians were burying their idols beneath temples when they were being used as slaves to build them. The indians would then pretend to be praying to Western gods when in reality they were praying to their own.

Sadly a few generations down the burying of aztec idols was forgotten and the Spaniards succeeded in "trading religions" to the locals.

Religion has always been used as a tool to control populations. The comfort you feel in thinking about god comes from within you, not from above. It's sad that my country (Mexico) is known as being proud of having been fooled by the Spaniards.

Unbiased Love for the Virgin of Guadalupe  Jun 13, 2002
This book was totally biased! For one, the authors are all theologians or participants in the Catholic faith and second, they favor Eurocentric thought. The Virgin cannot be spoken about from a Eurocentric perspective alone for she is a symbol of mixed identity, that of Indigenous and Spanish/European ancestry.

My advice to anyone interested in learning about the Virgin from a holistic perspective would be for him/her to read other books in addition to this one.
