The mystery. The rich heritage. The haunting sorrow and mesmerizing beauty captured in the solemn eyes of the saints. Explore the world of the Northern New Mexican Santo in this coloring book unlike any other. "Santos of Spanish New Mexico" is a perfect introduction for both young and old into the art of carving and painting images of saints that represent the care and love of the community that the Santero (maker of saint images) comes from. The Santero is a self-taught craftsman who utilizes handmade tools, pine, aspen, cedar or cottonwood root to fashion representations, figurines, and objects in honor of the patron deities brought to the New World by their ancestors during the late 16th century. Learn a little about the saints and the various depictions you can recognize anywhere throughout Northern New Mexico. A tradition handed down from generation to generation, the art of making Santos is still very much alive and thriving in this special region of the world. Care has been taken to be faithful to the artistic details of the original works. Like the folk art he has endeavored to reproduce, Al Chapman's drawings in this book are simple and sincere. This book is a good companion to "What is a New Mexico Santo?" by Eluid Levi Martinez and "Santos, A Coloring Book of New Mexico Saints" by Marie Romero Cash, both from Sunstone Press.

Volume VIII is a continuation of the journey of the Maldonado family to the Kingdom of New Mexico. It documents the Maldonado descendants of Juan Lpez de Godoy and Yns Lucero y Gonzlez Jaramillo through their son Maese de Campo (Commanding General) Pedro Lucero de Godoy and his two wives, Petronila de Zamora and Francisca Gmez Robledo, both pioneering New Mexico families. This includes not only their direct line of descent, but also cousins, uncles, aunts, and in-laws. The Maldonado database has more than 5,800 names with many of them represented here. The time period is generally from 1598 through the nineteenth century for most names, though the direct line continues to the present. Pedro Lucero de Godoy is the ancestor of many people living in New Mexico today. In this volume his other descendants can trace their connections to cousins from this extended Maldonado family. Juan Lpez de Godoy and Yns Lucero y Gonzlez Jaramillo are my tenth great-grandparents. Pedro Lucero de Godoy and Petronila de Zamora are my ninth great-grandparents. Petronila de Zamora is also my ninth great-grandaunt because her parents, Bartolom de Montoya and Mara de Zamora, are my double tenth great-grandparents. Don Pedros second wife, doa Francisca Gmez Robledo, whom he married following the death of Petronila de Zamora, is my ninth great-grandmother by virtue of her marriage to Pedro Lucero de Godoy; but, she is also my first cousin ten times removed, the great-granddaughter of my eleventh great-grandparents Pedro Robledo and Catalina Lpez.

This series of line drawings by legendary Santera (saint-maker) Marie Romero Cash, depict many of the popular saints painted by the santeros of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Northern New Mexico. The saints have always been an integral part of the culture, Marie says, so much so that in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in New Mexico the art of the religious folk art of the santero became a part of its history. In creating this coloring book, my goal was to not only impart knowledge about the santero culture, but to provide images that could be colored in by children or adults, and could also be used for many other purposes, including embroidery or various decorative arts. Each full-page image is suitable for coloring by children at playtime or in a classroom setting. Easy to read information on many popular patron saints is included, as is the feast day of each saint. Teachers will find this coloring book a valuable teaching tool. There is also an author preface and an article about Marie Romero Cash by well-known journalist, Kay Lockridge. Born in Santa Fe, Marie Romero Cash has been a Santera (saint-maker) for over thirty years. Her award-winning works are in major museums and private collections throughout the United States, Mexico, Africa and The Vatican. She has written several books and magazine articles on the culture and religion of Northern New Mexico and has lectured widely on the subject for the New Mexico Endowment for the Humanities."

Folk artists of New Mexico in the 18th and 19th centuries based the religious images of their art on the small-scale prints found in missals and prayer books imported from Europe. They discarded the rococo detail and invented their own colour schemes for the objects they created for personal devotion. This elegant book presents 42 of the most beloved saints in elegantly rendered pen and ink drawings with accompanying text.

An overview of Latino/a spiritualities today--Protestant, Catholic, Pentecostal, and non-Christian and the challenges they bring to Christian theology and ministry. Given the context of increasing religious pluralism and a burgeoning interest in religions, religiosity, and spirituality within the United States and the knowledge that by the mid-twenty-first century an estimated 100 million Americans will claim Latin origin, an understanding of the varieties of Latino/a spirituality becomes essential. This book focuses on the ways in which Latinos and Latinas participate in the pursuit and practice of the spiritual or "holy" santo as part of their lived religion. In seven chapters, Aponte explores various understandings of santo and its participation in daily life, rites of passage, and worship.
