9786070708794: Varon de deseos (Spanish Edition)

Una novela sobre el barroco mexicano y su gran mecenas: Juan de Palafox. Puebla de los Angeles, siglo xvii. Sobre una mula desvencijada, el obispo Palafox escapa a la sierra perseguido por sus enemigos. El unico hombre que ha tenido en sus manos el poder civil y religioso de la Nueva Espana es profundamente odiado por su empeno al ejecutar las Reales Cedulas, bajo la proteccion y mandato del rey Felipe iv. No importa la cruzada que ha emprendido a favor de la educacion, la cultura y la defensa de los indigenas: sus enemigos luchan contra el hasta conseguir su destierro a Osma. Varon de deseos es la biografia novelada del eclesiastico recientemente beatificado por el Vaticano y considerado el hombre mas brillante de la historia mexicana del siglo xvii. Su vida fascinante reverdece en el fragor de la pluma certera de Pedro Angel Palou: ?Quiso ser un hombre, solamente. Unos lo confundieron con santo. Y el les dijo, con claridad, ahora lo recuerda: un santo hecho de fuerza y de duro empeno, no un mistico con aire distraido, escondido en la franciscana vanidad de su pobreza?
