"¡Aplaca, señor, tu ira" is a study on how baroque imagery of colonial Lima in the 17th century included the idea of the marvelous in order to sustain the theological order of the time, in direct opposition to the rationalist advances of European science. The work particularly explores institutionalized fictitious ideas, including theories, absurdities, superstitions, and terrors.
