Abstract

Exhibition catalogue comprised of original scholarly research. 'Madonnas & Miracles' aims to challenge perceptions of Catholicism as a religion dominated by priests and ecclesiastical institutions, instead urging us to consider the agency of lay people in shaping religious life to their needs. This lavishly illustrated publication contextualises, discusses and illustrates a wide variety of devotional objects and images, ranging from the highest-quality artefacts to rough-and-ready household items. By casting new light on a wide range of objects, texts and practices, the book offers a varied and vivid encounter with Renaissance spirituality to a broad readership, exploring works of art at once striking, unfamiliar and replete with intimate meaning.
