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.

Promotional partner: Istituto Italiano di Cultura Toronto. Presented by the Canadian Institute for Mediterranean Studies, co-sponsored by the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, the University of Toronto Department of Italian Studies and the University of Toronto Department of Art History.
