Summary
The Poor Clares convent of Corpus Domini was the first home of Saint Catherine of Bologna, but after her departure, the convent reinvented itself as a noblewomen's retreat. In doing so, it transformed ideals of poverty, humility and women's education. This book, grounded in archival research and close examination of artworks from the convent, explores the visual culture and social history of an early modern Franciscan women's community. Its careful analysis yields new insights into the changing role of the community in the d'Este political and civic spheres
