Divine Mirrors: The Madonna Unveiled

Melissa R. Katz, Editor, Robert Anthony Orsi, Editor Oxford University Press, USA $50 (320p) ISBN 978-0-19-514557-1
What do Gertrude K sebier's photo ""Heritage of Motherhood,"" Albrecht Dorer's woodcut Life of the Virgin series and Our Lady of Guadalupe spray cans have in common? All reflect Divine Mirrors: The Madonna Unveiled, in which multiple images and essays on the virgin mother attempt to elucidate her hold on world culture. Melissa R. Katz, assistant curator at the Davis Museum and Cultural Center at Wellesley College (where the title exhibition is permanently housed) and Robert A. Orsi (The Madonna of 115th Street), a professor of American religious history at Harvard Divinity School, have assembled six essays (the most intriguing being Ifeanyi Anthony Menkiti's ""In a Corner of Africa: Reflections on the Virgin Mary"") and a plethora of b&w and color images from the exhibit.
