Long before the arrival of Hernn Corts, birds, serpents, the sun and moon, and human sacrifices figured prominently in the rituals and daily spiritual life of the inhabitants of todays Mexico. In the early sixteenth century, Roman Catholic missionaries began arriving in the area of TenochtitlanMexico Cityto convert the native Mexica to Christianity. The priests met with limited success until 1531, the year Juan Diego, a poor Mexica, first encountered the vision of the Heavenly Lady, now known as Our Lady of Guadalupe. Guadalupe is a lavishly illustrated history of Mexico's religious traditions. Touching briefly on the pre-Columbian decades of many deities, Carla Zarebska devotes most of the book to the post-colonial centuries of Catholicism, the Madre of modern Mexico, and the traditions and legends surrounding her. Primitive drawings and black-and-white photos from the early twentieth century depict natives honoring the Lady, and full color photos and paintings commemorate events and individuals from Mexico's history, including the Virgin Mary's appearances to Juan Diego. Over a dozen pages offer the story of Guadalupe's appearances in the native Nahuatl accompanied by the English translation. Guadalupe is available in both English and Spanish language editions. The ISBNs below identify the English editions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""Guadalupe" is a lavishly illustrated history of Mexico's religious traditions."
"This book is a great reference to the religous times of Mexico and the impact of the lady saint.""
" "Guadalupe" is a miracle of its own. Each page is a work of art--each essay, a relevation from original sources."
"This is the ultimate book on Guadalupe. Besides being beautiful to look at and very stylish it is also filled with information going back to the beginnings of Guadalupe in Mexico. The pictures are to die for and the book contains everything a scholar or lay person would want to know about Guadalupe and more."
