Synopsis: Monumental pictures and their social reality in Rome around 1300 are the focus of this study. The frescoes and mosaics under examination belong to the hitherto neglected façades and porticoes of important basilicas. Many of them - now lost or fragmented - described their cult repertory. They propagated ideas of their commissioners and mirrored the reality of the beholder, in terms of a new pictorial mimesis or verisimilitude. Their visual arguments were targeted towards the Romans, and, more importantly, towards the pilgrims who visited the eternal city to seek remission for their sins. The function of these pictorial media to transmit new and unconventional contents, phrased as a new pictorial vernacular, was increasingly devoted to the needs and expectations of a profoundly changed lay public. This process - although it coincided with the activity of Giotto - had its own distinctly Roman history.

About the Author: The Author: Jens T. Wollesen received his Ph.D. at the University of Heidelberg in 1975, and his Dr.phil.habil. from the University of Munich in 1985. For the research of this study he spent several years at the Bibliotheca Hertziana (Max-Planck-Institute) in Rome. He taught in Munich, Giessen, Santa Barbara, California, and is presently Associate Professor at the University of Toronto.
