Title : The Virgin "Lactans" as Second Eve: Image of the "Salvatrix" [the author analyzes the iconography of a painting by Carlo da Camerino, depicting the Virgin nursing the infant Christ with Eve reclining below; Margaret Miles had argued that the painting juxtaposes Mary's goodness with Eve's sinful body (and the bodies of the female viewers); the author argues that the panel creates a "complex allegory not only of the Virgin's centrality to human redemption but also of Eve's crucial role in this process"].
