In this paper we intend to make an approach to what was the impact of the figure of Sor Maria de Agreda in the Americas. The Spanish rose to fame due to the supernatural phenomena experienced, and it was used by the Franciscan Order (to which she belonged) for using her figure, to strengthen its work of evangelization in those lands and thus win the game to Dominicans or Jesuits. This strategy carried out by different means, was reflected in both literary and iconographic and their footprints can be traced to the present.
