Title : Illegitimate Scots in the Registers of Supplications and the Registers of the Apostolic Penitentiary during the Pontificate of Sixtus IV (1471- 1484) [The Papal Penitentiary was one source of dispensation for men of illegitimate birth seeking clerical livings. Suppliants of humble origins were more likely to petition the Penitentiary. Those of noble origins or well connected socially or politically petitioned the Datary successfully. University educated men of illegitimate birth also successfully petitioned the Datary for dispensations. These men could afford the Datary's higher fees, while the humbler suppliant had to petition the more affordable penitentiary. Title note supplied by Feminae.]

Title : La Madonna dei Miracoli nella Storia della Pietà Veneziana: Breve Profilo [in 1409 Francesco Amadi paid for a painting of the Madonna and child with Saints James and Anthony, both protective figures; miraculous powers were soon ascribed to this image; by 1480 enough miracles had been reported to motivate moving the image from its street corner shrine into a church; S. Maria dei Miracoli was built especially to house the image; Sixtus IV and the Patriarch of Venice authorized the foundation of a convent of Poor Clares in conjunction with the image in the 1480s; the first half of the article deals with the origins of the cult in the fifteenth century while the rest of the article considers its later history through the twentieth century].
