    Devotion and desire: the reliquary chapel of Maria Maddalena de'Pazzi
  • Autore: Barzman, Karen - Edis
  • Descrizione: Male religious in 17th century Italy were permitted an active life in society, but the role of female religious was much more narrowly circumscribed and they were expected to pursue a contemplative life withdrawn from the outside world. Mysticism seems to have held a greater appeal for women than for men, and depictions of female mystics in 17th-century art share a theme of unfulfilled desire. The paintings in the Reliquary Chapel of Maria Maddalena de'Pazzi exemplify this, depicting Mary Magdalene as a passive object in the story and in a state of unfulfilled longing.
