'The Truth about the Virgin of Guadalupe' (English)
Saturday, October 28 at 1pm (English) & 4pm (Spanish) ‘The Truth about the Virgin of Guadalupe’
The mystery of the cloak of Juan Diego Cuauhlatoatzin is the a central part of the story of the founding of modern Mexico. Did the Virgin Mary appear before a 58 year-old indigenous ‘Chichimecan’ and was her image cast upon his cloak in the miracle of Guadalupe? This lecture will draw upon recent scholarly work to explore the cultural significance of the pictographic symbols on the cloak and explain how they were interpreted by the two confronting cultures at the moment of the birth of Mexico.
