Art and the Augustinian Order in Early Renaissance Italy
Louise Bourdua, Anne Dunlop
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2007 - History - 231 pages
In art history, the rise of the medicant orders has been cast as the beginning of a new age. The term 'medicant' refers to the Franciscans, Dominicans, Carmelites, Servites and Augustinians. The goal of this book is to examine the 'medicant thesis' by focusing on art in the Augustinian Order in the two centuries following the Great Union.
