The canonization campaign from the
1460s to 1526
|a.||one collection can independently report on the same miracles as those narrated in another (this is the relation between N and the major part of Ia);|
|b.||one can represent a lineal continuation of another (this is the relationship between Ib and Ia);|
|c.||one can epitomize and recycle the miracle accounts found in a previous one (this is how Fara's and Varese's lists of miracles relate to N and Na);|
|d.||finally, one can epitomize and possibly rearrange, usually according to a medical taxonomy, the miracle accounts contained in the others, adding at the same time some new, previously unrecorded material (this is the relation, although to a very limited extent, between Na and N). This last option is not fully exploited at this early stage of the canonization campaign. It is more characteristic of later collections rather than those written before 1463.|
After the years which immediately followed Capistran's death the next notable concentration of sources related to his canonization campaign is datable no earlier than about 1520. And after this attempt again fails, the campaign will not resume until 1625, when it will take another 65 years and seven pontificates more for Capistran to be finally declared a saint (in 1690).
