Title : Miracoli con il signum: due casi a confronto, Rosa da Viterbo e Simonino da Trento [Devotion to Rose of Viterbo was recorded immediatly after her death in 1251. Her cult benefited from pilgrim traffic through Viterbo to Rome, as well as local devotion. Notaries recorded miracles that supported the cause for Rose's canonization. Similarly, when the body of Simon of Trent, a boy thought murdered by Jews, was found in 1475, notarized documents were prepared to support a less successful campaign for canonization. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

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].
