Creator: C. Nicomedes Lora
Publication Info: Santa Fe de Bogota : Santa Fe Imprente del C.B. Espinosa, 1815.

Summary: This sumario details the history of the confraternity and brotherhood of "Nuestra Senora del Carmen." It discusses indulgences, special days of Catholic saints, and the roles of people in the brotherhood.
Historical Notes: This example of early printing in nineteenth-century Colombia reflects the diverse growth of independent publishers during this time period. Following the expulsion of the Jesuits in the late eighteenth century, new printers began to contribute to the field of early print in the region like Espinosa de los Monteros, Antonio Narino, and the author of this text, Nicromedes Lora.
