Title : Il document notarile, prova privilegiata in materia di eventi straordinari e miracolosi: la Madonna Bianca di Portovenere (1399) [Notaries were supposed to attest that their documents conformed to reality, including the reporting of miracles. One report was the miraculous glowing image of the Virgin Mary from Portovenere (1399). This "White Madonna" appears in local documents over three centuries. A confraternity rallied round the image briefly, but it was extinguished by the plague in 1400. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
