= Narrates of a miraculous small 'image' of the Holy Virgin made of ivory ("una sua imaginetta miraculosa sculpita in Avolio"), kept in the Monastero della Pietà in Palermo. It is said that the monastery obtained this 'image', in reality a statuette made in the image of the famous Madonna of Trapani, in the year 1600. From the beginning, the nuns venerated this statuette with great devotion. The text, written in at least five different hands, first tells of the boundless compassion of the Holy Virgin, and continues to list, in extensive detail, miracles, that is miraculous recoveries of people from diseases and indispositions, effected through this small portrait of the Virgin. The recovered sick were nuns of the monastery itself but also numerous lay people from the area. This manuscript is described by A. Mongitore in Palermo divoto di Maria Vergine (Palermo, 1719) as "un libro scritto a penna, che si conserva in detta Monastero; in cui la diligenza delle Religiose ebbe la cura di registrar l'orgine di questa Sacratissima Immagine con 42. miracoli, de' moltissimi, che senza numero operò la SS. Vergine" (a book written with the quill, which is kept in said monastery; in which the diligent nuns registered the origins of this most sacred portrait with 42 miracles, of very many more, which the Holy Virgin effected). A unique and very interesting source for the history of religious devotion and worship. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CXXXI.
