Abstract
Friar Nicolás de la Iglesia, prior of the Carthusian monastery of Burgos, ordered the decoration of a chapel devoted to the Virgin Mary with Marian emblems. Shortly thereafter, between 1653-1654, he inserted them —adding some new ones, bringing the total to fifty-one— in a book dedicated to the Immaculate Conception entitled: Flores de Miraflores, hieroglificossagrados, verdadesfiguradas, sombrasverdaderas del Mysterio de la Inmaculada Concepción de la Virgen y Madre de Dios MaríaSeñoranuestra. We are faced therefore with the phenomenon of a pictorial collection that gives rise to a written work. This study analyzes the hieroglyphs created by Friar Nicolás, explaining their sources and meaning.
