  • Title: Le Vite e gli agiografi della bedta Stefana Quinzani [Stefana Quinzani was of humble birth and became a Dominican tertiary in 1500. She enjoyed good relations with the nobility and was able to found a religious house at Soncino. Much of the documentation available was connected with her cult which culiminated in her beatification in the eighteenth century. Only in Bartolomeo da Mantová's account do we hear of Stefana's voice, including her account of visions which she received concerning her choice between the Dominican and Franciscan third orders.
