Yn festo S. Michaelis Archangeli ad vesperas Ana. Antiphonary used at the Colegio de San Miguel de Belem on the day of the Feast of Saint Michael the Archangel. Author: Anonymous.

Represents a very rich and highly significant source to learn about the behavior, conducts and thought related to women, their education and protection during more than three hundred years of historical evolution. Upon reading about the details of daily life of the women a variety of subjects can be discovered that among others, have to do with politics, economy, religion or art and therefore constitute a historical legacy of incalculable value.
