ABOUT THIS BOOK
This book offers the first English-language examination of art commissioned by religious women in fifteenth-century Rome. Detailed photographs show readers the impressive array of  paintings commissioned by oblates for their living quarters, Tor de’Specchi. The book focuses primarily on the sensual and corporeal, as earthly, divine, and demonic figures occur throughout the imagery. The book uses formal analysis, theories of vision and anthropological models to explore the disciplinary and educational purposes of the images, as well as their relationship to important papal projects at the Vatican.
