Amy Remensnyder explores how Spanish Christians shaped the Virgin Mary as a symbol of the twinned colonizing enterprises of conquest and conversion in medieval Spain and early Spanish America. Beginning in the eleventh century and ending in the seventeenth century, the book brings together the medieval and early modern periods, the Old and New Worlds.
