Among the pieces from Latin America in our exhibition, Religious Change & Print, are two historical artworks representing the Virgin of Guadalupe, printed in Mexico in the seventeenth century; several choir books from Mexico dating to around 1700; a hand-written catechism in the Otomi language, from around 1600; and a grammar book in the Quechua language, printed in Peru in 1607. We invite you to examine these objects and more in this special tour of this exhibition, conducted in Spanish and English.

This tour is part of Religious Change, 1450 - 1700, a multidisciplinary project exploring how religion and print made the medieval world modern. The project is generously supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
