History
The “Cofradía y Esclavitud de Nuestra Señora Madre María Santísima de las Mercedes” became the “Cofradía de la Eslavatud del Cristo y de la Merced” in 1732.
The image of the crucified Jesus, made by Gregorio Fernández (Valladolid, 1628), became famous in Compostela with crowds flocking to venerate the sacred image on ash Wednesday and to the procession on the second Sunday of Easter (Dominica in albis), which went from the Cathedral to the monastery of  Padres Mercedarios in Conxo.
The procession and brotherhood were revived in 1980 after many years of absence in Holy Week.
