SCHAVELZON, Daniel. The hard road to be a nun: ¿an not regular Exorcism on Santa Catalina convent during XIXth Century (Buenos Aires)?. Trab. soc. [online]. 2011, n.17, pp. 7-15. ISSN 1514-6871.
During the rescue archaeological operations at the Santa Catalina nuns' convent on Buenos Aires, a pit was discovered. In it an iron figure with diabolic reminiscence was fired and buried. The figure was an ornament from a French sculpture; but what we fund was probably part of an exorcism ritual developed on the central patio of the convent during the second half of XIXth century.
