notes: 
Text discusses the copy of the Our Lady of Copacabana, the patron saint of Bolivia, which was in the church of San Carlo in Turin and describes the miracles done by the image in Peru [or present-day Bolivia]. The original was made by a native Inca, Francisco Tito Yupanqui, descendant of Huayna Capac Inca, and was enthroned in Copacabana on the shore of Lake Titicaca in 1583.
