"Matovina's work is... breath-taking."

"Matovina has produced a solid piece of history that will be of interest to and enjoyed by professional historians and laypeople alike."

"A well-written and insightful evaluation."

"Gaudalupe... is shown in various lights — in all her glory, and at times her mystery is even slightly unveiled."

"A focused, well-researched, and generous book that captures well the various ways that Guadalupan devotion has been expressed and transformed over time... This study undoubtedly represents a high point in this ongoing endeavor."

"This is clearly a substantial work of scholarship and a major contribution to Mexican American religious history... It deserves wide readership and acclaim."

"Beautifully written to evoke the very practices being studied, Matovina's painstaking work on communal identity provides evidence that group traditions and identities are 'made, not born.'"

"Guadalupe and Her Faithful is one of those rare texts that bridge the academy, the church, pastors, grassroots devotees, and a wider public... This book increases appreciation and knowledge of the growing Latino population and its religious traditions."

"Timothy Matovina's Guadalupe and her Faithful is a significant contribution to Guadalupan scholarship... Matovina taps into the corazón of the matter with his coverage of the religious and popular aspects of the devotion to La Virgen de Guadalupe."

"Very engaging story... An excellent contribution to Mexican American history and Latino spirituality."

"This study beautifully combines history, theology, and sociology in looking at Catholic worship in the Latino religious community surrounding San Fernando Cathedral in San Antonio, Texas."

"In Guadalupe and Her Faithful we have a well researched and readable examination of a vibrant faith community."

"A book that everyone... must read. It should be available in libraries across the nation, because any research on the Guadalupan legacy among Catholics, Hispanic or otherwise, would be incomplete without reference being made to Matovina's work."

"A well-researched and value addition to the literatures on popular Mexican and Chicano religiosities."

"This book belongs with other works that signal a welcome trend in scholarship where popular religion is, at last, no longer dismissed with condescension and scorn but deemed worthy or respect and study."
