Title : Angela da Foligno [The visions of Angela of Foligno are mediated through both her words in the vernacular and the Latin words of Brother Arnold. Both were aware of the limits of words to describe her experiences. Angela's visions, like those of other Umbrian women, focus particularly on the Passion of Jesus, but she also saw herself holding the Christ Child. Her Marian visions, unlike those of Clare of Montefalco, emphasize Mary's poverty and humility].

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 note supplied by Feminae.].
