La Fraternidad Piadosa de Nuestro Padre Jesus Nazareno, known as Los Penitentes is a lay religious brotherhood of Spanish-American Catholic men that arose in northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. The Penitentes are known for their religious chants or alabados, and their practice of self-flagellation.
