Mexican Phoenix : Our Lady of Guadalupe : image and tradition across five centuries by D. A Brading ( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 815 libraries worldwide
In 1999 Pope John Paul II proclaimed Our Lady of Guadalupe a patron saint of the Americas. According to oral tradition and historical documents, in 1531 Mary appeared as a beautiful Aztec princess to Juan Diego, a poor Indian. Speaking to him in his own language, she asked him to tell the bishop her name was La Virgen de Guadalupe and that she wanted a church built on the mountain. During a second visit, the image of the Virgin miraculously appeared on his cape. Through the centuries, the enigmatic power of this image has aroused such fervent devotion in Mexico that it has served as the banner of the rebellion against Spanish rule and, despite skepticism and anticlericalism, still remains a potent symbol of the modern nation. In Mexican Phoenix, David Brading traces the intellectual origins, the sudden efflorescence, and the theology that has sustained the tradition of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Brading also documents the interaction of religion and patriotism, and describes how the image has served as a banner both for independence and for the Church in its struggle against the Liberal and revolutionary state.

Haciendas and ranchos in the Mexican Bajío, Léon, 1700-1860 by D. A Brading ( Book )
14 editions published between 1978 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 519 libraries worldwide
During the eighteenth century the Bajio emerged from its frontier condition to become the pace-maker of the Mexican economy. Silver mining boomed and population increased rapidly. It is the aim of this book to examine the impact of these dramatic changes on the structure of agricultural production and the pattern of rural society. In his Miners and Merchants in Bourbon Mexico 1763-1810 (Cambridge Latin American Studies 10) Dr Grading demonstrated how the local entrepreneurial elite accumulated vast fortunes during the mining bonanza at Guanajuato. In this present work he describes how many of the same men invested their capital in the purchase and improvement of haciendas in the nearby district of Leon. The countryside was transformed as wasteland was cleared for ploughing, or was irrigated.
Church and state in Bourbon Mexico : the Diocese of Michoacán, 1749-1810 by D. A Brading ( Book )
6 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 317 libraries worldwide
In the eighteenth century the Mexican Church experienced spiritual renewal and intellectual reform. The establishment of Franciscan missionary colleges, of the Oratory and of convents and sisterhoods greatly enlivened devotion in the diocese of Michoacan. Thriving confraternities demonstrated the vigour of parochial life. But the secular clergy remained divided between a wealthy elite and an impecunious mass of curates and country vicars, with the cathedral chapter dominated by a group of enlightened peninsular canons. Charles III and his successor expelled the Jesuits, secularised mendicant parishes, closely invigilated popular religion, stripped the clergy of their immunity from royal courts and then seized their wealth. In 1810 priests from the Michoacan diocese led the popular Insurgency which challenged Spanish rule. Here is a rounded portrait of the Mexican Church at its meridian, which touches upon virtually all aspects of religious life and highlights the clash between post-Tridentine baroque Catholicism and enlightened despotism.

La Virgen de Guadalupe : imagen y tradición by D. A Brading ( Book )
2 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in Spanish and English and held by 117 libraries worldwide
For centuries, the Virgin of Guadalupe has symbolized the identity of the Mexican people. Her likeness sparks a kaleidoscope of images and feelings: the flag of rebellion against Spanish dominion, a spiritual haven, the cure to a myriad of physical and mental illnesses. In this book, Brading reflects on its history, doctrine and celebrations provide a deeper understanding of the creation, transformation and social validity of this key element of the Mexican identity.
