La Conquistadora

The Virgin Mary at War and Peace in the Old and New Worlds

Amy G. Remensnyder

  • Covers over a thousand years of Marian history, from the Christian Reconquista in mediaeval Spain through to the re-conquest of New Mexico after the Pueblo revolts by Diego José de Vargas in the late seventeenth century and the establishment of the cult that is still in evidence today
  • Provides a comprehensive and multifaceted reconstruction of a complex history while never losing sight of the essential unifying thread of the story.
