Manuscript on paper in Italian detailing the revenues of the Church of S. Maria del Presidio in Naples. Folio (312 x 229mm). 94 leaves in gatherings of 6. Written in a neat secretarial script in brown ink on recto and verso. Original wrappers inscribed "Stato Generale delle Rendite e dei pesi del Venerabile Monistero Sev Conservatorio di S. Maria del Presidio alla Pigna Secca 1791", title between borders; (wraps somewhat brittle and browned, otherwise clean). Santa Maria del Presidio is a monumental church on the Via Pasquale Scura located in the Spanish Quarter of Naples, Italy. Within the church, the Penitentary, or Conservatory for Women, was founded in 1647 and placed under the care of the Pii Operarii of S. Nicola alla Carita. Just six years prior, devastating lava flows from Mount Vesuvius buried many villages in the city killing around 3,000 people. In the aftermath of the disaster, many women were motivated by religious zeal and returned to a life of penance and order. The practice of these pious women centered on good works and civility; and they were easily recognizable for they wore the apparel of Saint Francis. The convent supported itself by its own labors and by casual charitable contributions. The women originally numbered about eighty and formed an edifying community. Even today, there are 21 Oblate, and 18 boarders all which perform spiritual practices and charitable works. This manuscript survival details the revenue generated by this important charitable organization of women in Naples and is dated to 1791. N° de ref. de la librería D3094
