Our Lady of Guadalupe : the origins and sources of a Mexican national symbol, 1531-1797 by Stafford Poole( Book )

23 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and held by 1,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe, based on the story of apparitions of the Virgin Mary to Juan Diego, an Indian neophyte, at the hill of Tepeyac in December 1531, is one of the most important formative religious and national forces in the history of Mexico. It has variously been interpreted as the source of Mexican national identity, a means of continuity between the Indian past and Spanish domination, a symbol of national liberation, and a way of evangelizing and pacifying the Indians. The aphorism "Mexico was born at Tepeyac" aptly summarizes its importance. In this, the first work ever to examine in depth every historical source of the Guadalupe apparitions, Stafford Poole traces the origins and history of the account, and in the process challenges many commonly accepted assumptions and interpretations. This is revisionist history at its best and will undoubtedly provoke widespread scholarly debate
Christianity comes to the Americas, 1492-1776 by Charles H Lippy( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1492, civilizations entirely unknown to one another dramatically confronted their differences along a line that eventually extended from Nova Scotia to Tierra del Fuego. Over three centuries, the religious, political, and economic pressures of Europe motivated a nearly complete cultural sweep over the entire Western Hemisphere. In Christianity Comes to the Americas, three distinguished historians retell, from the vantage point of the latest historical scholarship, the story that began in late medieval Western Europe and came to a conclusive turning point near the end of the eighteenth century. Stafford Poole brings to life the entire movement of Spanish and Portuguese conquistadores, mendicants, and missionaries throughout South and Central America, the Caribbean, Florida, Mexico, and the American Southwest. The accomplishments and anguish of such figures as Bartolome de las Casas, Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz, Antonio Vieira, and Juan de Zumarraga, among others, take center stage o ver the exploits of Pizarro, Cortez, Balboa, and Coronado. Robert Choquette tracks the French Catholic missionaries who crisscrossed the American continent, including Jesuit martyrs and Saint Marguerite Bourgeois of the St. Lawrence River Valley. He tells of missionaries shooting rapids and driving dog teams in America's vast hinterland and of Brother Andre performing miracle cures in Montreal's St. Joseph's Oratory. Charles H. Lippy follows the reform movements of Calvin and Luther as they extended to the settlements all along the Atlantic coastline. Lippy's narrative traces the dilemma of Puritan covenant ideology personified in the lives of Anne Hutchinson and Roger Williams, the vicissitudes of the colonial Anglican church, and the contributions of Quakers like William Penn, who bridged the ideals of Puritanism and the ideals of the Enlightenment. Christianity Comes to the Americas tells a complex story of grand ambition, great tragedy, and selfless humanitarianism. We see the visi onary ideals of fervent men and women, the conflicts between soldiers and missionaries, and the sometimes brutal clash between colonizers and colonized over practices of nudity, cannibalism, torture, family relationships, worship, and conversion. All three historians write sensitively of the twentieth century issues spawned by colonial practices: slavery and ethnic persecution, ecological imbalance, isolationism, xenophobia, and regional independence, Christianity Comes to the Americas is solid, comprehensive history presented here in a single, masterful work
Pedro Moya de Contreras : Catholic reform and royal power in New Spain, 1571-1591 by Stafford Poole( Book )

12 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poole shows that Moya de Contreras was as diligent at carrying out the tortures of the Inquisition as he was at exposing government and church corruption. A complex man who upheld Spanish rule while honoring Native traditions, Moya de Contreras learned Nahuatl so he could hear the confessions of indigenous Mexicans. His reforming zeal reached its culmination in his leadership of the Third Mexican Provincial Council of 1585, which enacted a legal code for the Mexican Church that lasted more than three hundred years
Juan de Ovando : governing the Spanish Empire in the reign of Phillip II by Stafford Poole( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philip II is a fascinating and enigmatic figure in Spanish history, but it was his letrados - professional bureaucrats and ministers trained in law - who made his vast Castilian empire possible. In Juan de Ovando, Stafford Poole traces the life and career of a key minister in the king's government to explore the role that letrados played in Spanish society as they sought to displace the higher nobility in the administration through a system based upon merit."--Jacket

The story of Guadalupe : Luis Laso de la Vega's Huei tlamahuiçoltica of 1649 by Luis Lasso de la Vega( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and Multiple languages and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of the most important elements in the development of a specifically Mexican tradition of religion and nationality over the centuries." "This volume makes available to the English-reading public an easily accessible translation from the original Nahuatl of the story itself and the entire book in which the story is embedded. The study also provides scholars with new perspectives on a text long at the center of Mexican intellectual currents. Through the use of technical philological methods, it indicates that the text may have been authored in the mid-seventeenth century by a Spanish-Mexican priest, based on an earlier text by a colleague of his, and that it was not the product of Nahuatl oral tradition." "The present edition offers a translation and transcription of the complete text of the 1649 edition, together with critical apparatus, including comparisons of the Sanchez and Laso de la Vega texts, and various linguistic, orthographic, and typographical matters that throw light on the date and manner of composition."--Jacket
