Guadalupe 490th Anniversary: recorded seminar

 

 

 

Commemorating the 490th Anniversary of the Apparitions of Our Lady of Guadalupe

 

 

 

On December 9, the Catholic Church commemorates St. Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin, to whom the Blessed Virgin Mary first appeared on that day, 490 years ago, on Tepeyac Hill (now Mexico City).


After this "private" revelation, of which there were many in history, there remained a unique artifact – an image of the Virgin of Guadelupe. Research in the twentieth, and especially the twenty-first century, provides new insights into our understanding of the possibilities of "visual theology."

In this seminar, our panel will discuss:
• The history and characteristics of the image of the Mother of God,
• The unusual events that changed the face of the Americas,
• The relevance of her message in our time…
