LV: Palma il Vecchio, Correggio, Annibale Carracci


To those who may be receiving one of these post-notifications for the first time: This is not a blog; it’s actually part of a book, and will make little sense to you without knowledge of what has come before—which you can easily obtain, along with a goodly amount of satirical theatre as matters progress, by simply entering ttgftyri.org into your web browser, opening the menu, and starting at page one.

We must pause here to report that in 1531 a Mexican peasant named Juan Diego, who claimed to have actually seen the Virgin on four different occasions hanging around a hilly area of Mexico City known as Villa de Guadalupe, where the new Spanish archbishop wanted to build a church, described her as clad in a pinkish-red gown and cerulean mantle covered with stars—and even had the mantle, which she’d given him with her image imprinted on it in living color, with which to prove it.

Today, the Church keeps this venerable object in a vault at her great shrine just outside Mexico City; while based on its image, she appears to have looked very much like the person in this anonymous modern painting:

734. Our Lady of Guadalupe

Diego reported that she’d even spoken to him in his native, Aztec language—Nahuatl— introducing herself as the Virgin Mary, “mother of the true god”, and suggesting that a church now be built at that location in her honor.

At the moment, a temple consecrated to the Aztecs’ Great Mother Tonantzin stood there—every year, drawing millions of peasants from towns all up and down the Valley of Mexico, making it by far the most popular pilgrimage site in all the Aztec territory.

But after the Virgin’s appearance in the neighborhood, the Spanish priests destroyed the temple and replaced it with a church that they would simply call the basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe; and of course, as the stream of pilgrims continued pouring into the site, they assumed that the structure was just some new temple erected to Tonantzin—and now housing a great new statue of her called ‘Our Lady of Guadalupe’, along with, would you believe, a marvelous cloak bearing her image that she’d actually given to a man who’d recently seen and spoken with her.

And for the time being, the Spanish did little to disabuse them of that interpretation of matters, until eventually, Tonantzin and the Virgin became one in the eyes of many; while today, the site not only still attracts millions of visitors a year, but has become the most visited Catholic pilgrimage site in the world—and indeed, the third most popular such site among all religions.

But now we must move on . . .
