Description

The importance of the Virgin Mary in the spiritual world of the Middle Ages can hardly be overemphasized. She is present in many works of literature, art, spiritual treatises and theological works. From the very beginning, the medieval Franciscans were one of the principal promoters of a marked devotion to Mary. This session will focus on the different expressions of devotion to the Virgin within the Franciscan tradition from the 13th to 15th centuries.
