Beyond Death Comes for the Archbishop, Building the Cathedral in Santa Fe

In 1851, Father Jean-Baptiste Lamy, a French priest, entered the frontier capital of New Mexico. Lamy's dream of building a cathedral was fictionalized in Willa Cather's great novel Death Comes for the Archbishop. While the cathedral has become the symbol of Santa Fe, to some people it is a symbol of cultural imperialism. Learn the fascinating history behind this beloved novel and iconic building.
