Very Distinguished and Fervent Brotherhood of Nazarenes of Our Father Jesus of Passion, Holy Mary of Love and Saint John Evangelist.
It was founded in 1939 in the Parish of Ntra. Sra. de la Paz in the neighbourhood of San Basilioby members of a brotherhood, most of them from Hermandad de Nuestra Señora del Tránsito (Brotherhood of Our Lady of Death), although there is some evidence from the 17th century. It went along the streets of our city in 1941 for the first time, and at the end of that decade, the image of Virgen del Amor (Virgin of Love) was included in the procession, accompanied by Saint John Evangelist.
Parish of Nuestra Señora de la Paz (San Basilio).The Parish of Nuestra Señora de la Paz is popularly known with the name of “San Basilio”, as this was the temple of the convent of this religious order after which the neighbourhood is named. After the expropiation in 1835, the convent was destroyed, and its rich artistic heritage was spread. Only the church was preserved, as an auxiliary one of the Tabernacle of the Cathedral, until it was erected as a parish.

The image of Nuestro Padre Jesús de la Pasión (Our Father Jesus of Passion) is an anonymous work from the 17th century that seems to belong to the school in Seville, due to its characteristics. Before the foundation of the brotherhood, the Lord of Passion was greatly worshipped by the neighbours of “Alcázar Viejo“, most of them working in the neighbouring orchards; thus, it was called “Christ of the Gardeners“.
The Nazarene is standing, in an itinerant attitude, holding the cross on his left shoulder. He is leaning forward, while slightly turning his head towards the Cross. He has a swarthy face, with a low look, showing contained pain caused by the tiredness of the Cross and the punishment suffered. The crown, full of thorns, makes blood go down his forehead.
The Cross which is currently taken on procession was made by Luis Álvarez Duarte; it is a tree-like cross that substitutes another one from the 17th century, with a square section, vegetable motifs and gilded flamed edges. Since it is an image to be dressed, he is wearing a purple velvet tunic with fine gilded embroidery.
María Santísima del Amor (Holy Mary of Love) – [PHOTO #1; #2]
The image of María Santísima del Amor (Holy Mary of Love) is, like in the previous case, an anonymous work from the 17th century, but this time it is attributed to the school in Granada. It was previously known as Virgen de los Dolores (Virgin of Pains), and it only had a bust, which was provided later. It has gone through numerous restorations due to its bad conservation state, such as the one carried out by Juan Martínez Cerrillo from Córdoba around 1946, orthe one by Miguel Ángel Arjona in 1982.
Her face is bursting with sweetness; thus, it is difficult to understand its previous name of Los Dolores (Pains). However, it suits the current one perfectly. Her face is pale, and her opened eyes are full of love for her son and hide the pain she feels inside.
Next to María Santísima del Amor (Holy Mary of Love) there is Saint John Evangelist, previously known as San Juan de la Palma, also an anonymous work from the 17th century. It has been restored several times, and we can highlight the restoration carried out in 2001 by Antonio Bernal, who included beard and moustache. Saint John has a face with balanced features, which, together with his calm expression, create a tender countenance and filial love for the Mother.
