  • Title: La produzione agiografica del domenicano Tommaso d'Antonio da Siena: esempi di santità ed intenti di propaganda [Many late-medieval saints' lives were composed by persons who knew their subjects, and chose to individualize them. Tommaso Caffarini's works personalize Catherine of Siena, presenting a spritual profile, not just recounting miracles. His work on Vanna of Orvieto and Margaret of Citta di Castello, however, is less rich in personal detail. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
