This manuscript contains the rules of a religious organisation named Sancta Misericordia which existed in sixteenth-century Cordoba. The title page reads “Regla de la sancta misericordia de nuestro senhor Ihesu Christo E de la limpia Conception de nuestra senora E virgine sancta Lucia e sanct Julian d’esta ciudad de Cordova Anno de 1561 Annos”. The final clause, dated 6 September 1562, shows that the ‘Misericordia’ was established in the church of St. Nicholas de la Axerquja, on the Potro Square in Cordoba. The clause is signed by the cathedral canon, Juan Diaz de Valleso
