- Our Lady of Guadalupe is the only Marian apparition tradition in the Americas - and indeed in all of Roman Catholicism - that inspired a sustained series of published theological analyses. Theologians in each successive epoch since the mid-seventeenth century have plumbed the meaning of Guadalupe for their times. Their theological works are grounded in two realities: the first is the relationship between Guadalupe and her faithful, and the second is her power to shape their lives and their world. 'Theologies of Guadalupe' examines the way theologians have understood Guadalupe and sought to orient her impact in the lives of her devotees.
