(EBOOK/PDF) [Our Lady Of Guadalupe: And The Conquest Of Darkness] è Warren H. Carroll
Wonderful book Very true to Warren Carroll s style lots of historical facts
I Was Expecting This was expecting this to be mostly about the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe however the first 34 of the book was about the conversion of Mexico the Aztecs and the wars between Cortes and Montezuma I still enjoyed this book and learned so much Hindsight the author was setting the stage for the timing of Our Lady s appearance to Juan Diego The culture HAD to change in order for the people s hearts to be open to such a special blessing from above Cortes paved the way for the missionaries War had to happen before peace could come As with most contemporary history courses they paint most Catholic historical figures in a bad light Carroll does an excellent job setting the record straight He neither idealizes Cortes nor belittles his historical significance The record straight He neither idealizes Cortes nor belittles his historical significance The about the apparition and Juan Diego are moving I highly recommend Nevermind if you are a Catholic a Protestant or neither Are you against human sacrifices and for human rights Well then et rid of your prejudices and read this book It is time that our young folk at college start Elena's Conquest getting the facts right if not at college then through the original sources This book is a summary of the Conuest physical spiritual of Mexico by the Catholic kingdom of Spain Whether you like it or not not is not the point they are facts History is not to be liked or disliked it s past and there s nothing to do about it Those who consider the Christianization of the Aztecs along with their subjugation to a new people wrong they ought to tell me what they would have done if they were among the Spaniards of those times I say it s ridiculous to put ourselves in the position of folks 500 years ago while living in the sedativeovernment subsidized world of today unless you re a hypocrite to dareHow can this excellent historian condense all the adventures and facts of this history in so few pages is something that I haven t seen before The result is that not only every page but every line and every word is precisely chosen and placed I am savoring every page of it Sister of My Heart going back and re reading to fullyrasp the implication of the scenes describedMr Warren H Carroll s Catholicism doesn t diminish the accuracy or objectivity of this account we are talking History not politics or religion and Mr Carroll is a historian of top notch uality He uses Aztec as well as Spanish sources that either were themselves witnesses or recuperate testimonies from witnesses Mr Carroll knows the contemporary accounts of the Conuest and he specially uses the version by Salvador de Madariaga if anybody knows him he can be reassured of his ualified status among historiansFacts In 1487 during the rule of a Tlacaellel among the Aztecs and when he was 89 years old he dedicated the new pyramid temple in the center of Tenochtitlan He dedicated with the King Alfred's Version of St. Augustine's Soliloquies greatest mass sacrifice of his reign The sacrifice went on for 4 days and 4 nights killing 80000 people from the hostile provinces and the swollen ranks of slavery It took only 15 seconds to kill each victim they were that expertThose pre Marxists and socialists of yesteryear killed about 50000 folk a year Do our college professors and minority rights advocates consider this a legitimate part of their ancient cultureThere s many many amazing and elouent stories to be read here But I want to finish by mentioning Mr Carroll s point about how the Conuest of Mexico and by extension of all Hispanic Americaot a bad name I bet the hypocrite progressists of our anti American campuses know well Fray Bartolom de Las Casas This monk would become such an advocate of all the Indians tha. Standard histories on the Age of Colonization tell a sad story of the ills inflicted on indigenous peoples by exploitative Western powers. Ack to her son in a violent world A delightful and well written little book Every Catholic should read it I ive this book 4 stars and not 5 because although this book is filled with many fascinating historical facts I do not Agree With Everything That Warren H Carroll with everything that Warren H Carroll in his book For example he seems to agree with the Dr Callahan s conclusion that certain parts of the image on the tilma such as the sunburst stars etc of Our Lady of Guadalupe were made by human hands Contrary to Callahan s conclusion that certain parts of the image were made by human hands the evidence available today proves otherwise I would recommend watching this video by Brother Peter Dimond for info about the tilma and many of its miraculous aspectsThe Amazing and Miraculous Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe There are other things that Warren says that reveal an attitude of disapproval for what is allowable according to Traditional Catholicism Unfortunately Warren H Carroll was not a Catholic He denied that the Catholic faith is necessary for salvation Please see this video for informationWhy Historian Warren H Carroll was not a Catholic This is a One Of Kind Historical Account of kind historical account the religious human sacrifice practices of the paganistic of the MexicaAztecas The author makes the sound Catholic argument that these were Satanistic practices which were battled by the arriving Spanish friars and priests The author weaves a flawless tale of this dark period to the baptism of millions of new Christians who joined the Catholic Church I found this book an amazing piece of historicalcutural research an an excellent narrative A ood account of the conuest on the Aztec s by the Spanish This book Class of 92: Out of Our League gives a fair representation of the facts It does not whitewash the atrocities committed by the Spanish after conuering Mexico City It also states clearly the horrific accounts of the almost constant human sacrifices practiced by the Aztecs Any nation which willingly mass sacrifices it s people in that horrid manner needs to have intervention This book alsoives account of the apparition of Our Lady to Juan Diego It Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story gives compelling evidence as to the event occurring and the resulting 9 million baptisms which followed Our Lady of Guadalupe is truly the Patroness of all the Americas Though many conventional historians of Mexico today prefer not to mention Our Lady of Guadalupe or at least not at the point in time when she appeared it should be self evident that this immense surge of baptisms beginning in 1532 these millions of Indians suddenly seeking out the sacrament of Christian initiation with an overwhelming desire even when not in contact with the missionaries when most of them had previously held back despite the best efforts of the missionaries and the prestige of the conuerors derived primarily from the impact of the apparition and the portrait once news of them had spread throughout the land during the course of the year 1532 p105 106 Our Lady of Guadalupe Pray for us Carroll indeed is a historian and his summary of extensive research makes for a notable read on the background to Guadalupe His wit and commentary come through only after he has established the history His perspective is primarily from the viewpoint of the evangelization of a new culture to the truth of Christianity and it is fascinating Carroll is the founder of a Catholic university so don t mind silly comments about his identity Good book Warren Carroll is a very levelheaded author whoives history s characters their due if they ve done wrong they ve done wrong If they haven t done wrong he corrects the modern narrative against truth I m just starting this book no. Rtantly with its central evangelical and civilizing impulse that transformed the Americas from savagery into a central part of Christendo.
