Exaltacion de la Divina Misericordia en la milagrosa renovacion de la soberana imagen de Christo Sr. Nro. crucificado.


Mexico : Imprenta del Lic. D. Joseph de Juaregui, 1776.

The history of the town of Izmiquilpa’s statue of Christ Crucified, to which many miracles are attributed. Dating from about 1545, there, it had been moved in the 17th century to the Convent of San José of the Discalced Carmelite Women in Mexico City. A striking etched plate showing the miraculous image done in the Mexican Baroque style faces page 1; this engraving is apparently lacking in most copies (it was probably often removed and used as an icon in its own right). This popular work was first published in 1688 (or possibly 1685).
