Title : The "Madonna Avvocata" Icon at Orte and Geography [cities near Rome and in the papacy's political orbit imitated the processions and artistic styles of the Eternal City; Orte, however, was between Rome and Spoleto, with political ties to both; the "Madonna Avvocata" done by the Sienese painter Taddeo di Bartolo borrows from both the Roman "San Sisto Madonna" and an image in Spoleto that resembles the Byzantine depiction of Mary called the hagiosopitissa. The choice of Taddeo to paint this image reflects a deliberate choice of Orte's leaders to acknowledge both Roman and Umbrian influences on their city].

Imags of Mary rely on intellectual and theological symbolism rather than on the humanized and affective portrayals that became popular in the thirteenth century. Common motifs include the Virgin as Ecclesia, Wisdom, Bride of Christ, and a crowned queen. Both images and texts were transmitted to the secular world. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : The Sex of the Savior in Renaissance Art: The Revelations of Saint Bridget and the Nude Christ Child in Renaissance Art [Bridget's description of the nude Christ child at the Nativity, written during the fourteenth century, had a strong influence on fifteenth century visual representations of the Christ child, who was often depicted as naked infant with genitals in open view. The exposure of the Christ child's penis is a moment of revelation that displays His gender and also exemplifies His humanity. This was a common motif in the Brigittine scenes of the Nativity and the Adoration of the Shepherds, but was later transferred into other contexts, such as the Adoration of the Magi and devotional images of the Virgin and Child.

Title : Cecilia Gallerani: Leonardo’s Lady with an Ermine [The authors identify the sitter for Leonardo’s portrait as Cecilia Gallerani, the mistress of Duke Ludovico Sforza. It is not the lady’s resemblance to other women in other contemporary portraits but the iconography of the painting that identifies her. She holds an ermine (weasel) because Sforza's emblem was the ermine, or because the Greek word for ermine is “gale” (a pun on the lady’s surname). Cecilia may also have been the model for the pointing angel in Leonardo’s “Virgin of the Rocks.” The Appendix transcribes six Latin documents concerning Cecilia. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

The author describes the original appearance of the shrine and the devotional purposes it served, as well as the shrine’s relationship to an earlier tabernacle that stood in Orsanmichele. The shrine provided a focus for devotion to the Virgin, and although it was not originally designed for celebration of the Mass, it was at some point converted to include an altar for that purpose.

[The image of Mary at Santa Maria all' Impruneta came to be attributed to Saint Luke; foundation of the shrine was dated by the "Leggenda" to the reign of Pope Urban II with an image created by a painter named "Luca;" the "Leggenda" gives an unusually accurate description of the image of the Virgin and Child, and it reuses earlier material in its discussion of the history of the shrine; the text also reflects the eventual displacement of other local patrons by the Buondelmonte family; the article concludes with three transcriptions from the "Storia di Santa Maria dell' Impruneta"].

Title : Texts and Images of Marian Devotion in Thirteenth-Century England [Many lay practices focused on the Virgin Mary developed in the thirteenth century. They required a basic knowledge of Latin to read books of hours. Many of the most popular ideas, such as Mary the intercessor, were found in art. Much of thirteenth century Marian art from England has been lost; but illuminated manuscripts employ the most common motifs, including Mary pleading bare-breasted for sinful humanity. The Appendix presents Middle English language texts of Marian antiphons, hymns, and prayers of the Sarum Hours from an early fifteenth century manuscript of "The Prymer or Lay Folks' Prayer Book."
