Item description for La Virgen De Guadalupe: Imagen Y Tradicion (Spanish Edition) by David A. Brading...

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. Description in Spanish: A travs de los siglos, la Virgen de Guadalupe ha inspirado una ferviente devocin en Mxico: estandarte de la rebelin contra el dominio espaol y un poderoso smbolo de la nacin moderna, es tanto punto de arranque como de arribo de mltiples investigaciones desde muy variados enfoques tericos. El culto guadalupano se ha convertido en fuente de consuelo espiritual y en posibilidad de curacin de los ms diversos padecimientos corporales. Esta tradicin une los sentimientos religiosos y patriticos del pueblo mexicano, lo que la sita como un ejemplo depurado de la funcin social del mestizaje. El autor centra sus pesquisas y reflexiones en torno de la doctrina, la historia y las ceremonias guadalupanas sin el objetivo de abrir un debate en favor o en contra de lo religioso, sino con la intencin de entender la construccin, transformacin y vigencia social de esta pieza clave dentro del mosaico multiforme que compone la identidad mexicana. Aporta elementos imprescindibles para comprender los orgenes intelectuales, el florecimiento y la adaptabilidad de la tradicin de la Virgen de Guadalupe.
