Publication Info: Santa Fe : La Imprenta real de Don Antonio Espinosa de los Monteros, 1809.

Summary: This document is an 1809 reprint of "Historia de Cristo Paciente," which was originally printed in 1787.
Historical Notes: After the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1773, printing in Colombia grew in diverse ways. Many independent printers developed such as Antonio Narino, Nicromedes Lora, and Diego Espinosa de los Monteros. Before becoming an independent printer and joining Narino's Imprent Patriotic (or Patriotic Press), Espinosa de los Monteros worked as a printer with the royal Spanish government in Colombia. This document reflects some of Espinosa de los Monteros' early work as the royal printer for the Spanish crown. The publishing information listed him as the "imprenta real."
