 La Erección de los Conventos de Santa María del RíoEl libro "IV Centenario de la Fundación de Santa María del Río", editado en 1943, narra la historia de los conventos tal y como los historiadores de la época lo hicieron. El Franciscano José Arlegui en sus "Crónicas de la Provincia de N.S.P.S. Francisco de Zacatecas" publicadas en 1734, relató, sobre el origen de los conventos en San Luis Potosí, que "el convento de Santa María del Río, dista doce leguas de San Luis Potosí, y tuvo su erección en el sitio que hoy se llama S. Diego de Atotonilco, dos leguas delante de la estancia de D. José Villela, en el año de 1589".El pueblo estaba comprendido de alrededor de quinientas familias repartidas en dos barrios, divididos por medio del convento. Los otomíes eran los menos obedientes al culto y los religiosos lucharon por
"quitarles la embriaguez, enfermedad de que adolecen todos los días". En 1737 Arlegui asistió a las ceremonias
del juramento que se hizo a la Virgen de Guadalupe, al proclamarla Patrona y Abogada de las enfermedades y
epidemias. Por su parte,



Fr. Martín de Urrízar de la Orden de los Frailes Menores de N.S.P.S. Francisco, Lector Jubilado, en cumplimiento del mandato real de 1688, en el que se ordenaba una relación jurada del número
de religiosos de los conventos Franciscanos, su erección, sufundación, etc, relata: "El Convento de Santa María
del Río, consta de cuatro religiosos: no tiene legado alguno de misas, la erección de dicho Convento fue el
año de mil seiscientos y cuatro: es sólo pueblo de indios." English:Building of the Convents of Santa María del RíoIn the book "IV Centenarian of the Founding of Santa María del Río", edited in 1943, the history of the convents is narrated, just as the historians of those days did it. Franciscan Monk José Arlegui in his "Crónicas de la Provincia de N.S.P.S. Francisco de Zacatecas", published in 1734, narrated, about the origin of the convents in San Luis Potosí, that "the Santa María del Río Convent is 12 leagues from San Luis Potosí, and was erected on the site known today as S. Diego de Atotonilco, 2 leagues ahead of the ranch of D. José Villela, in 1589."The town was made up of around 500 families spread out in 2 barrios, divided by the convent. The Otomíes were the least obedient in worshiping and the religious order struggled to "stop them from drinking, a sickness they suffer from every day". In 1737, Father Arlegui attended the solemn oath ceremonies made to the Virgin of Guadalupe, proclaiming her the Patron and Defender in sickness and epidemics. For his part, Father Martín de Urrízar from the Order of the Frailes Menores (Lower Monks) de N.S.P.S Francisco, Retired Lector, in compliance with the 1688 Royal Mandate, that ordered a statement of the number of religious orders in the Franciscans Convents, its construction, foundation, etc., expresses: "The Convent of Santa María del Río, has four religious orders: there is no legacy of mass at all; this Convent was built in the year 1604: it is only a town of Indians."
