Lista de los numeros premiados en el sorteo 72. Para la obra del Templo de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, celebrado en la Real Loteria.

“List of winning numbers in the draw 72. For the work of the Temple of Our Lady of Guadalupe, held in the Real Lottery”The raffle was made to fund the construction of the Temple of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. A very curious document. For around 20 to 30 years in the Colonial era, circa 1780-1810, there was  a curious practice of making raffles to fund construction of churches and chapels. The national lottery came to New Spain around 1770, and they were responsible for supporting these kind of practices with something they called “Auxiliary Lottery”. Raffles and other sorts of games made by others besides the Real Loteria were strictly forbidden and were subject to be called gambling, and thus heretical.
