Title : Mystical Enunciations: Mary, the Devil, and Quattrocento Spirituality [the author argues that Catherine Vigri's text, "Sette armi spirituali," written for the guidance of her Poor Clare sisters, embodies the era's growing doubts about mysticism and the ways to authenticate visions; the Virgin Mary at the Annunciation plays a central role for Catherine Vigri because she prefigures the mystic in the "clausura" of the convent, aware of diabolical dangers and maternal in her protection and love for her sisters].
