BAEZ-RUBI, Linda. Vehicles of Vision in the Representation of the Sacred. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2009, n.22, pp. 131-156. ISSN 1665-1200.
This essay has as an objective to reconstruct the relationship that is established between the individual and the production of images meant to "visualize" the spaces of vision where the encounter of the human with the sacred is carried out. As an example we have taken the graphic production of the mystic Santa Rosa de Lima (Saint Rose of Lima 1586-1617) whose emblematic diagrams dating from the beginning of the 17th century are an important testimony in which the working of an interdependence between the representation of interior images and the manifestation in exterior images can be established. In this psycho-physiological process the body as a means intervenes along with certain exterior vehicles that act as corporal extensions and have the purpose of physically materializing the images produced in the visions of the saint from Lima.
