Title : La santa danza di David e il ballo peccaminoso di Salomé: Due figure esemplari dell'immaginario biblico medievale [although there are both holy and ungodly dances in the Bible, early on Christain exegetes dismissed most dances as sinful; David's dance before the Ark, however, was interpreted as dignified and orderly, expressing spiritual submission to God or as acrobatics showing his humility by laying aside his royal garb and his dignity; medieval artists did not generally depict David's dance, but both artists and preachers condemned Salomé's dance before Herod as lascivious; fashions in the depiction of her dance changed, but Salomé remained a figure of woman's seductive power].
