Description

Each year, the Hagiography Society offers a multidisciplinary panel focusing on a select saint. This year's panel is devoted to Anne, the mother of Mary. Because Anne is not a biblical figure, her cult offers unique perspectives on devotional development, particularly in the later Middle Ages and Early Modern Period when her cult expanded significantly. As a model of domesticity, Anne exemplified gender roles and family life. As Anna Selbdritt, her popular artistic aegis, she made important contributions to northern European tastes in material devotion. And as a favored saint among clerics, she had a role in shaping the appeal of orthodox Christianity.
