Regarding Tribute to Ana Guerra de Jesus. Ana Guerra de Jesús is associated with a life of great piety and religiosity. Her testimony, wherein she recounts being married to an abusive husband and later committed herself to a religious life, was collected by Antonio de Siria. It is the first known testimony of a Central American woman and the first autobiography of a Salvadoran woman. She was so esteemed by the Jesuits that she was buried within this, their temple of San Francisco Borja in Antigua.
