Publisher's description: Through an examination of such diverse visual images as prints, drawings, panels, sculptures, minor arts, and frescoes, this book, a significant contribution to research in art history, sermon studies, gender studies, and theology, examines the representations of St Clare of Assisi in the Italian visual tradition from the thirteenth to the mid- seventeenth century. Debby highlights the role of women saints in the reform movements of the Osservanza and the Catholic Reformation, and in the face of Muslim-Christian encounter of the early modern era.
