Summary: This booklet is a Roman calendar. It is written in Latin and is ecclesiastical in nature. It specifically details days of religious celebration for saints and holidays.
Historical Notes: This booklet was printed by one of the early and important printing presses in Colombian history -- the Impreso Patriotica (sometimes referred to as the Imprenta Patriotica, as well). Antonio Narino began the printing press. Narino became known as the "Precursor" of the independence movement in Colombia and used his printing press to circulate material related to the growing sentiment for independence. For example, in 1791, Narino circulated The Rights of Man. Narino's Imprenta Patriotica also published materials related to religious and secular themes, like this Roman calendar.
