Miracle tales, in which people are rewarded for piety or punished for sin through the intervention of the Virgin Mary, were a popular literary form all through the Middle Ages. Milagros de Nuestra Sehora, a collection of such stories by the Spanish secular priest Gonzalo de Berceo, is a premier example of this genre; it is also regarded as one of the four most important texts of medieval Spain. Difficulties in translating this work have made it unavailable in English except in fragments; now Spanish-language scholars Richard Terry Mount and Annette Grant Cash have made the entire work accessible to English readers for the first time. Berceo's miracle tales use the verse form cuaderna via (fourfold way) of fully rhymed quatrains -- which Berceo may even have invented -- and are told in the language of the common man. They were written to be read aloud, most likely to an audience of pilgrims, and are an outstanding example of oral religious narrative. The total work comprises twenty-five miracles, preceded by a renowned Introduction that celebrates the Virgin in rich symbolic allegory. Mount and Cash's translation is highly readable, yet it retains the original meaning and captures Berceo's colloquial style and medieval nuances. An introduction placing the miracles in their medieval context and a bibliography complement the text.

In Gonzalo de Berceo and the Latin Miracles of the Virgin, Patricia Timmons and Robert Boenig present the first English translation of a twelfth-century Latin collection of miracles that Berceo, the first named poet in the Spanish language, used as a source for his thirteenth-century Spanish collection Milagros de Nuestra Señora. Using the MS Thott 128, close to the one Berceo must have used, Timmons and Boenig provide both translation and analysis, exploring the Latin Miracles, suggesting how it was used as a sacred text, and placing it within the history of Christians' evolving understanding of the Virgin's role in their lives. In addition, this volume explores Berceo's reaction to the Latin Miracles, demonstrating that he reacted creatively to his source texts as well as to changes in Church culture and governance that occurred between the composition of Latin Miracles and the thirteenth century, translating it across both language and culture. Accessible and useful to students and scholars of medieval and Spanish studies, this book includes the original Latin text, translations of the Latin Miracles, including analyses of 'Saint Peter and the Lustful Monk,' 'The Little Jewish Boy,' and 'The Jews of Toledo.'

Every December, Grandma Lupita tells Rose the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe. As they make paper flowers to put around her statue, Grandma begins: Long ago, on a cold December morning near what is now Mexico City, a man named Juan Diego put on his cloak and started down the road to church. On his way, Juan Diego sees a beautiful Lady at the top of a hill. She tells Juan Diego to go to the Bishop and ask him to build a special church for her. But the Bishop doesn't believe that Juan Diego has seen the Lady; he asks for a sign. Again the Lady sends Juan Diego, and again the Bishop asks for a sign. Until finally, she provides one: her shining image on Juan Diego's cloak for everyone to see.

Los prodigios divinos son percibidos dentro de la idea medieval del vasallaje. Tal vez la literatura religiosa hagiografica que despues se escribio en Espana tenga su origen en esta figura del vasallo que alucina en medio de sus rituales de sumision ante su senor o el mismisimo Dios. Este texto se integra entre las principales obras marianas de Berceo: Loores de Nuestra Senora y Duelo de la Virgen. El modelo estrofico que Berceo aplico en sus versos fue la cuaderna via. Berceo introduce al lector en un mundo tangible en el que lo mistico adquirio un caracter natural que dio veracidad a esta historia versificada. La cuaderna via es una estrofa de cuatro versos de catorce silabas, divididos en dos hemisitiquios de siete. Cada estrofa repite la misma rima consonantica en sus cuatro versos. Parece que tuvo su origen en la Poesía latina de la Edad Media. La rima es aaaa, bb., etc. A principios del siglo XIII fue sustituida por el verso de arte mayor.

Carl Anderson's investigation into the mystery of the Virgin Mary's appearance in Mexico in 1531 seeks to enliven the cultural richness of the Catholic Church in the Americas by embracing Our Lady of Guadalupe as the patroness of all the Americas, accessible to English- and Spanish-speaking Catholics alike. The book begins by explaining the history of the apparition of Our Lady to a native peasant, Juan Diego, in Mexico in the 16th century and shows how she has become one of the most important Catholic figures in the Western Hemisphere.
