"Siglo XVI: El inicio. Guadalupe" explores the historical significance of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico, beginning in the 16th century. The work emphasizes the importance of the Catholic symbol in providing cultural unity to Mexicans throughout history to the present day; it argues that one cannot truly understand the country without first understanding Guadalupe's story and how it profoundly shaped Mexico's religious identity.
