Example text

The text was believed to have survived in two transcriptions, one now lost (Ayerbe-Chaux 13). Ayerbe-Chaux made his edition from the other transcription kept at the Biblioteca Colombina (63-9-73) in Seville. As Lacarra explains in a forthcoming article, López de Córdoba does not mention a brother Álvaro, but we may owe the survival of Memorias to an attempt to provide Álvaro with a distinguished family background for his beatification in 1741.

Nevertheless, they build on a less regulated and structured older practice of individual testimonials written about particular Christian images (Christian chap. 1). I believe that Memorias is one of these accounts. Almost all of the older miracle texts reveal a writer who records the event. Their high degree of orality points to the narrating author’s lack of education.
