In this paper we will study the celebrations of beatification and canonisation that took place in the city of Seville since 1672, the year after the commemoration of the sanctity of King Ferdinand III, to 1750. Taking Sevillian sermons and pamphlets as the main sources for this research, in the following pages we will focus on the common aspects of the festive phenomenology, analyzing how churches became "abbreviated skies", characterized by specific ornaments and ephemeral pieces of architecture made for that purpose. In addition, the sumptuary wealth, the symbolic culture and the relevance of images of saints in relation to these feasts, are also key features of these `abbreviated skies¿ . Finally, an assessment of the relations between these festivities and other festivals of the Baroque has been made.
