About this title

From the Publisher:

The Holy Family in Art and Devotion is a collection of essays on the iconography and history of devotion to the Holy Family of Nazareth. These essays were selected from among the papers delivered at the Holy Family Symposium, held in April 1996 at Saint Joseph's University, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the extension of the Feast of the Holy Family to the liturgical calendar of the Universal Church. Literary scholars, art historians, theologians, and cultural historians study a wide variety of topics in depth: the portrayal of the Holy Family in medieval English mystery plays; the contributions of Ignatius Loyola, Teresa of Avila, Francis de Sales, and the French School of Spirituality to the evolution of the Holy Family devotion; the rapid spread of this devotion in 17th-century Canada; devotion to Jesus' extended family, specifically the cult of St. Anne, in Colonial Peru; the link between Pope Leo XIII's promotion of veneration and imitation of the Holy Family and his social teaching in his most well-known encyclical Rerum Novarum (1891); the sacramental nature of family life. The volume concludes with two important documents occasioned by the Holy Family Symposium: a letter from the Vatican Secretariat of State reflecting on the Symposium's theme of the Holy Family as Prototype of the Civilization of Love, and a homily by Bishop Carlos A. Sevilla, S.J., bishop of Yakima (Washington) and a member of the U.S. Bishops' Committee on Marriage and Family Life, who presents a synthesis of the most significant elements of the teaching of Pope John Paul II and of the American bishops on the Holy Family.
