The Marian shrine in Guadalupe, Cáceres, Extremadura, Spain, dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe, was the most prominent Marian shrine in the medieval kingdom of Castile. It is one of Spain’s many dark or black-skinned Madonnas, adored in the Monastery of Santa Mara de Guadalupe in Guadalupe, the town from whence many Spanish conquistadors sprung.
In Roman Catholicism, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Spanish Nuestra Seora de Guadalupe, often known as the Virgin of Guadalupe, is the Virgin Mary as she appeared to St. Juan Diego in a vision in 1531. This name also refers to the Marian apparition. Our Lady of Guadalupe is a prominent Catholic devotion in Mexico and maintains a distinct place in the country’s religious life. Her picture has served as a national symbol of Mexico for many years.
According to legend, Mary appeared to Juan Diego, an Aztec convert to Christianity, on December 9 and again on December 12, 1531. During her first apparition, Mary requested that a shrine be built in her honor on Tepeyac Hill, where she appeared (now in a suburb of Mexico City). However, the bishop required a sign before approving the construction of a church. Mary then appeared to Juan Diego a second time and told him to pick roses. Juan Diego opened his cloak in a second meeting with the bishop, allowing thousands of roses to fall to the floor and showing the picture of Mary imprinted on the inside of the cloak, which is now worshipped in the Basilica of Guadalupe.
The significance of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexican history is not restricted to religious considerations; she has also influenced Mexican nationalism and identity. Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla made her the patroness of his revolution against the Spanish in 1810. The rebels’ war cry was “Long Live Our Lady of Guadalupe,” which included an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe on their banners. Preachers claimed that the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which freed the people from idolatry and brought the Spanish and indigenous peoples together in a shared devotion, was the basis of Mexico during a religious resurgence in Mexico in the late 19th century. When Emiliano Zapata’s peasant rebels marched into Mexico City in 1914, they carried the banner of Our Lady, and the rebels’ banners bore her picture during the Mexican civil war of 1926–29. Hundreds of thousands of pilgrims visit her shrine each year, attesting to her continued relevance as a religious and national symbol.
