And over at Domestic Issue . . .

Sor María Antonia de la Purísima Concepcíon. 18th century. Ex Convento de Culhuacán (some pictures here and here), Mexico City. Click on the image to enlarge. The caption records her parents’ names, her birthdate, and the date and place she took the habit for the first time.

Some of you have been kindly indulgent of my relatively frequent posts on Mexican colonial Catholicism--in particular, the cult of the Virgin of Guadalupe--and casta painting (most recently, this one). Over at Domestic Issue, I have a new post on this subject that, finally, feels close to right.

Maybe I can move on to something else now.
