Anniversary of the death of Miguel Mañara.

On May 9, 1679, Miguel Mañara died in his apartments in the Hospital de la Caridad, accompanied by two poor people and their brothers of Charity. He left us an immense legacy: a hospital that was the most important charity in the city and still active today, serving elderly people in need; and an artistic heritage that is an authentic jewel, in which it participates, with Mañara as a link, Valdés Leal, Murillo, Pedro Roldán, Bernardo Simón de Pineda, Leonardo Figueroa... to give materiality to Mañara's religious ideology, which He makes us reach his message every time we go through the doors of the Church of St. George. And as if that were not enough, his ascetic concept of religion has come to us, in a brief, profound and very impressive book: The Discourse of Truth, essential for understanding the mentality of Mañara and the Spanish Baroque.

We get the feeling that still has not been understood in all the greatness of his personality, because also, by the hand of Mañara, we managed to understand their time and their society, that the seventeenth century Seville, shaken by the huge contrasts, terrifying epidemics of plague, floods, the counterreformist fury and always watched by the eye of the Inquisition, a society tremendously sacralized, for the bad and the good, and that presents its best face in the institution that Mañara promoted dedicating everything that He was left alive and his enormous fortune.

After his death, a very risky beatification process will begin that has not yet finished. In part because of the unfounded Donjuanesque identification, the invention of romantic travelers, the basis of sin, but that has certainly not benefited, helped by the beatification of the venerable Miguel Mañara. To make known his figure and his work in its authentic dimension is the purpose of humanity, which now opens the private rooms, the place where he died, to achieve this approach to the "gentleman of the poor" that takes place on the 9th of each month and the last Monday of each month, at 7:00 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m. It is necessary to book by phone 605 683 869 and the visits are free.

And with this postnwe also offer our latest contribution to the #BeyondTheWall challenge. We have had fun and we have learned a lot with him. Soon more.
