From the Evangelicae Historiae Imagines; an illustrated guide for prayerful meditation on the Gospels, after Bernardino Passeri and Marten de Vos. It was compiled by the scholar and Jesuit Jerome Nadal, (1507-1580) at the behest of St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556). The series was published in Antwerp in 1593 by the publishers Christophe Plantin and Martinus Nutius. . In 1594 and 1595 Evangelicae Historiae Imagines was republished entitled Adnotationes et Meditationes in Evangelia.

Carel van Mallery (1571-c.1635) was a Flemish engraver and publisher. Trained in Antwerp, he was a pupil of Philips Galle, whose daughter he married in 1598. In 1601 he was naturalised in Paris, where he remained for a short period before returning to Antwerp, where he was Dean of the Guild of St Luke in 1620-1621.

Bernardino Passeri (1577-1585) was a painter, designer, engraver and print publisher. He was mostly active in Rome. Amongst his achievements were a set of fifty plates he designed delineating the life of St Benedict. They were engraved by Aliprando Caprioli and published in 1579.
