Owner description: The Royal College Seminary of Corpus Christi, known as the Patriarch, is an institution founded in 1583 which had as its main mission to train priests according to the spirit and provisions of the Council of Trent, as stated the founder himself in San Juan de Ribera their constitutions, becoming the paradigm of the Counter-Reformation in Valencia. It was declared a National Monument in 1962. In addition to the relevance of their church decorated with fresco paintings by Matarana or its cloister, one of the best examples of Renaissance architecture with columns made of Carrara marble, among the works of art-historical importance that are preserved in our Museum highlights paintings by Caravaggio, El Greco, Van Der Weyden, Benlliure or Pinazo Ribalta and others, as well as the original manuscript of the posthumous work of Sir Thomas More, martyr British chancellor of the church, written during his imprisonment in the Tower London before his execution that took place on July 6, 1535. This valuable manuscript, called 'Instructions and Prayers' or 'Tristia Christi (The Agony of Christ)', which can be considered a true spiritual testament, was saved by his daughter Margaret, who did reach Spain with the help of Emperor Charles V.
