Miracles in Mexico

Frank GrazianoWe’ve just received notice of a fantastic new website about votives and other ’empowered objects’ from Mexico. Miracles in Mexico is the companion website for Frank Graziano’s forthcoming book Miraculous Images and Votive Offerings in Mexicowhich will be published later this year by Oxford University Press.

The site hosts a selection of photographs taken by Professor Graziano during his fieldwork at shrines across Mexico. Short accompanying essays help to make this site a really rich resource for anyone interested in votives – or indeed material religion more generally.

Visit the website at http://miracles-in-mexico.com/
