Also see . . .  Friar Servando Teresa de Mier. Teresa de Mier led an amazing life, escaping imprisonment from Spanish authorities seven times. He even spent a short amount of time in Philadelphia prior to Mexican Independence! Interestingly, his remains are probably not still in the Temple of Santo Domingo, with a rumor suggesting that his mummified remains were sold and later toured Europe.
