Item Description...
Canada's culture is distinguished by the Virgin Mary's astonishingly frequent presence -- her roots in Canadian soil are deep. In the book, rich references delve into literature, history, art, and geography. In locating Mary in this country, Skogan observes the ways she transforms to answer Canadian needs. From Virgin Mary sightings on frosted windows to thrift shop icons, from the Our Lady Peace rock band to traditional prayer, Mary lives in Canada.

Dense, poetic, and lovingly hewn, Skogan's work, based on years of extensive research, brings the Virgin Mary to Canadian shores. Illustrations, varying from modern art to pop-culture presentations, offer visual context.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Mary of Canada  Jul 17, 2007
Mary of Canada is part art, part spirituality, part history, and part geography book. The author explores associations of the Virgin Mary throughout various aspects of Canadian culture. In undertaking these explorations, the author finds traces of Mary in some very unusual places. One would expect a religious symbol to appear in Catholic churches, cemeteries, and other religiously influenced locations. Statues, paintings, stained glass, and other related works do appear in such locations across Canada. However, the Mary influences I found most intriguing were in secular situations. For instance, the rose as a symbol of Mary or towns, rivers, colleges, and universities named for the Virgin Mary. I also found the use of Mary in advertising quite interesting.

Mary of Canada is beautifully put together with a little something for everyone. The pictures are incredible. I was also impressed by the amount and depth of research that the author put into this text. I had no idea that the Virgin Mary was so entrenched in Canadian history or culture. Many of the things the author mentions, I would not have even thought of as Mary influences until I read this book.
Exploring images and evocations of the Virgin  Apr 13, 2004
Engagingly illustrated with compelling black-and-white photographs, Mary Of Canada: The Virgin Mary In Canadian Culture, Spirituality, History, And Geography by journalist and author Joan Skogan is a thoughtful and original study of the Virgin Mary's perception, incorporation, and frequent presence in Canadian culture. Exploring images and evocations of the Virgin in Canadian literature, history, art, and geography, Skogan deftly takes the reader on an imaginative and engaging tour through Canadian history, the human heart, and Christian spirituality.
