Abstract:
This thesis examines three sixteenth-century Italian life cycles of Saint Catherine Benincasa of Siena (1347-80; canonized 1461) which previously have not been studied together. They are: 1. Giovanni de' Vecchi's frescoes in the Capranica Chapel in Santa Maria sopra Minerva in Rome (1577/8-86) 2. A series of oil paintings by a number of Tuscan artists in the Oratorio della Cucina in the Santuario-Casa di Santa Caterina in Siena (1567-1600/35) 3. A printed vita of the saint designed by Francesco Vanni and etched by Pieter de Jode, published in Siena (1597).
