Restorers of an 18th-century statue of Jesus Christ have found a cryptic calligraphed note embedded in its rear end.

The note, which dates all the way back to 1777, was written and signed by Joaquin Minguez, a priest at the Cathedral of Burgo de Osma.

The note is said to discuss various things including the economy, political and religious matters, and other topics.

The script also highlights common diseases along with popular children's games in 1777. The restoration firm has refused to discuss 'warnings' that a source close to the team claimed they had found.

The Daily Mail reports: The document was recently unearthed by workers of the Madrid-based art restoration company Da Vinci Restauro.

The wooden statue is usually kept at the church of Santa Agueda in the village of Sotillo de la Ribera in the northern Spanish province of Burgos. 

The document, handwritten on both sides of two pages, was found when restorers removed a piece of fabric used to cover Christ's behind which exposed a small gap, Da Vinci Restauro claims.

'The document of the eighteenth century appeared when we were dismantling the Christ of the cross,' restorer Gemma Ramírez Millares told MailOnline.

'The wood is hollow inside, and the sculptor introduced the two permanents, which we have found.

'The document found talks about life in the town in 1777, the author, the local economy, games, and customs of the time, etc.'

Da Vinci Restauro created a re-enactment video showing how its artists came across the amazing find. 
The firm reports it spoke to a local historian named Efren Arroyo, who said: 'It is amazing because it really is unique to find hidden handwritten documents inside such statues.'

However, the company was not forthcoming with details of Mr. Arroyo and could not confirm where his research is based.

The document names the statue's sculptor and includes information about local practices such as farming and community affairs, Da Vinci Restauro claimed.
