Item description for Women, Art, and Spirituality: The Poor Clares of Early Modern Italy by Jeryldene M. Wood...

This text situates the art made between the 13th and 16th centuries for the Franciscan nuns in its historical and religious contexts. Evaluating its production from sociological and intellectual perspectives, this study also addresses the discourse between spirituality, devotional practices, and aesthetic attitudes as formalized in the construction and decoration of the women's convents and in their didactic literature. Based on a range of sources, it integrates primary texts, such as Saint Clare's rule, poetry composed by the nuns, financial records, and family history in analysis of paintings, sculpture and architecture commissioned by the order. Also synthesized are theoretial developments in anthropology, women's studies, history and literature with traditional iconographical and social approaches of art history.
