CAMPOS, Adalgisa Arantes. The Carmelite order. Per musi [online]. 2011, n.24, pp.54-61. ISSN 1517-7599. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-75992011000200007.
This study emphasizes the legendary origin of the Carmelite Order, which dates back the Old Testament. Its historic foundation, in the 18th century, is deeply related to the marvellous experiences (meraviglia), as well as to Carmelite Order's devotional journey and expansion, both noticed through the enlargement of the number of monasteries and layman associations belonging to them. Special attention will be given to the Carmelite cult in Minas Gerais, a region where monasteries couldn't be established, but where we can find architectonic monuments of a great historic, religious and artistic importance.
