This study reconstructs both the physical appearance and the spiritual experience of Torquemada’s Meditationes, through a careful analysis of primary documents, architectural fragments, and historical analysis. though no artist can be named with certainty, the lost fresco cycle of the Minerva provides a unique opportunity to examine the conception and reception of a monumental devotional cycle commissioned by one of the most erudite theologians of the fifteenth-century for one of the most popular churches in Rome. This book contains twelve color photographs and twenty-one black and white photographs.
