Riassunto: n spring 1996, Saint Joseph s University mounted the exhibition The Holy Family as Prototype of the Civilization of Love: Images from the Viceregal Americas, which commemorated the 75th anniversary of the extension of the Feast of the Holy Family to the liturgical calendar of the Universal Church.
Dall'editore: In spring 1996, Saint Joseph's University hosted the exhibition "The Holy Family as Prototype of the Civilization of Love: Images from the Viceregal Americas," which commemorated the 75th anniversary of the introduction of the Feast of the Holy Family to the liturgical calendar of the Universal Church. The exhibition displayed paintings from the Spanish Colonial period, rare books and engravings from 17th- and 18th-century Europe, and lithographs and devotional paintings on tin from 19th-century Mexico and New Mexico. Culled from private collections, galleries in New York and Miami, and institutional collections of several Catholic universities, these art works offered a visual chronicle of the evolution of devotion to the Holy Family.
A catalogue of the exhibition, this volume contains essays on the historical development of the Holy Family devotion from the late Middle Ages to the late 20th century, the subject of the Holy Family in Western art, and the encounter of European and Inca cultures observable in images of the Holy Family in Andean Viceregal art. It also includes color photographs of books and art works exhibited, each of which is fully explained in accompanying commentary.
