Here is a woodcarving of an #ImmaculateConception image printed in Lima, Peru in 1618, and chasing down these types of mass-produced images has been today's researching #MartindePorres journey lol. ____________________ In 1660, 2 lay Catholics unaffiliated officially with the Church, in their testimonies concerning Martin de Porres' case for beatification and eventual sainthood, mentioned that in his room at the Dominican Convent he had a picture of the "#VirginMary conceived without the stain of original sin" that he was devoted to and prayed before. ____________________ This is interesting because for hundreds of years, culminating in the 17th century, the Dominican Order staunchly opposed the Immaculate Conception of Mary, or the idea that Christ redeemed his mother Mary *before she was even conceived* so that her womb could be spared the stain of original sin and be preserved for Christ to enter it. Yeah complicated theology... __________________ Anyway, these 2 mentions of Martin's pic of the Immaculate Conception is even more provocative because in 1616 Pope Paul V banned discussion of the Immaculate Conception in churches because it was becoming venomous and provoking riots. Evidentally this didn't stop because 6 years later Pope Gregory XV had to reaffirm this decree. During this same time, however, Spanish artists affiliated with the Franciscans and Jesuits, most notably #FranciscoPacheco, began to standardize the iconography of the Immaculate Conception since images can circulate as sermons without words. _______________ The standard depiction is Mary as a teenager in the prime of her youthfulness, standing upon a crescent moon, crowned by 12 stars and offset by the brilliance of the sun behind her (this images lacks the crown of stars element added later). _______________ I find it extremely of value that Martin is on record via his aesthetic choices as being in support of a teaching that his own order stood against based upon their #thomism, as this reveals that Martin took a stake in the politics of the theology of the Church. #archives #catholichistory #arthistory #religioushistory #schism #inmaculadaconcepcion
