29 In effect, Solorzano envisioned the Habsburg realm as a universal monarchy, composed of several kingdoms, in which the crown was supported by two great orders of government, the secular and the ecclesiastical, each endowed with its own laws, courts, ministers and revenue, respectively led by magistrates and bishops appointed by their common ruler. In New Spain imperial providentialism was matched by a religious cult which affirmed that the Mother of God had chosen the Mexican people for her especial protection.

In the closing chapter of Americana Thebaida which dealt with the vale of Jacona, Escobar provided a list of no less than ten crucifixes venerated in churches and chapels of the region, most of which had been found carved within the trunk or roots of local trees, of which the most famous was the celebrated Christ of La Piedad.
