Fernando de Valverde. Vida de Iesu Cristo Nuestro Senor Dios. Lima: Luis de Lyra, 1657.

Fernando de Valverde was a member of the Augustinian order, prior and provincial vicar of the convents in Cuzco and Lima, and assessor of books and images for the Inquisition. He authored a number of diverse works: a theological treatise, a mystical work entitled La santa casada, the sacred poem La Copacabana, and several short ceremonial poems.

The Vida de Iesu Christo is a biography of the Redeemer: an elegant paraphrase, exposition and concordance of the four gospels.
