Manifesting Miracles: Image Cults in Late Medieval Southern Italy

Thursday, April 20, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Claire Jensen, PhD Candidate, Department of Art History, University of Toronto

In late medieval southern Italy,  it was not uncommon for a painting to grant miracles. From resolving legal trouble to protecting people from plague and natural disasters, public images frequently inspired active cults of devotion. This talk will introduce several miraculous artworks in and around Naples and discuss how they challenge the traditional canon of art history.
