Santa Rosa de Lima (1586–1617), patron saint of Peru and the Philippines, inaugural saint of the Americas, devoted herself to a life of prayer. She was beatified on 15 April 1667 and canonised on 12 April 1671, one of the quickest canonisations in history. This lecture looks at the role played by translation in the canonising transformation of the original testimonies (recorded in Spanish) into the first official biography written in Latin, Vita mirabilis et mors pretiosa venerabilis sororis Rosae de Sa. Maria Limensis (1664), by the enigmatic Dominican friar and master of the English Province, Leonardus Hansen.
