(Re)framing the Virgin of Guadalupe: The Concurrence of Early Modern Prints and Colonial Devotions in Creating the Virgin


It is recognized that the iconography of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico City evolved from European prints which circulated in the New World in the sixteenth century. The overwhelming significance of the devotion to the Immaculate Conception of Mary in the Spanish Empire has led scholars to situate this image within the merging of iconographical formulations that gave birth to the orthodox iconography of the respective doctrine. I repudiate this view by retracing the visual traditions and discursive contexts in which the Tepeyac painting emerged.

Prof. Dr. Raphaèle Preisinger is Principal Investigator of the ERC- and SNF-funded research project “Global Economies of Salvation. Art and the Negotiation of Sanctity in the Early Modern Period” at the University of Zurich in Switzerland. Her first book is entitled “Lignum vitae. Zum Verhältnis materieller Bilder und mentaler Bildpraxis im Mittelalter” (2014). She is currently preparing a second book provisionally entitled “The Destruction of the Idols and the Emergence of the Christian Cult Image in New Spain: (Re)Framing Sacred Objects in the Age of Early European Expansion”.
