Aztec Songs and Stories: The Prophetical Case for Guadalupe

1531: Juan Diego met Guadalupe on Tepeyac hill. Their iconic meeting fascinates the faithful and society even today. She is the force that created the Mexico that we know, blending Spanish and native blood. What if indigenous prophecies foretold her coming, ages before anyone saw a Spaniard? What if their ancient flower songs foreshadowed Juan Diego’s encounter?

The research of Joseph Julián and Monique González has uncovered striking links between ancient Mesoamerican song poems and the apparitions of Guadalupe. Joined by Ezekiel Stear (PhD, Colonial Spanish Language and Literature), and featuring Chris García (expert practitioner of Mesoamerican percussion), the group goes beyond the famous image. There is more to the Guadalupe story than meets the eye. Come learn about a meeting between the ancient past and a Western story we thought we knew.

Thesis

The Aztec flower songs communicate indigenous ideas about truth and beauty. Millions of indigenous in mesoamerica knew these songs ages before the conquest of Mexico.

These songs express a longing for paradise.

Through setting, language, and the gift of sacred flowers, the “Guadalupe Narrative” fulfills the hope of the Aztec Flower Songs.

Implication #1- News of The Guadalupe Narrative encouraged millions to convert to Christianity immediately.
Implication #2- The tilma is a part of a large “Network of Ideas”

The Three Pillars


Pillar #1 Preexisting Knowledge or The Flower World Complex
Pillar #2 The Guadalupe Event
Pillar #3 Millions of Conversions
