This informative & beautifully illustrated book cover the life & paintings of these four remarkable Latin artists. Well illustrated, this book contains black & white photographs & 94 full color plates.
The sermons collected here in Spanish and English show how nineteenth-century speakers attempted to interpret and apply the Word of God to everyday lives. Steele documents the attempts of all manner of laity and clergy -- Mexican Franciscans and Italian Jesuits, Hispanics and Anglos, Catholics, Methodists, and Presbyterians -- not only to interpret scripture but also to persuade people to amend their behavior.
