About this Item

Art criticism, morality, and religion intersect as Rosignoli discusses the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, and Michelangelo, among other artists. This Jesuit favors => demonic and Satanic influence as an explanation for the odious, secular imagery to be found in certain paintings, and praises the beneficial effects of the Virgin Mary?s inspiration. He also advocates exercising stricter ecclesiastical control over the arts, and demands that ?obscene? paintings be destroyed. This early edition of Rosignoli?s work, first published in Bologna in 1696, is decorated with floriated capitals, headpieces, and tailpieces, with an engraved frontispiece lacking in this copy. The volume opens with a dedication to Don Teobaldo Maria Visconti and closes with a thorough index. 12mo (14.8 cm; 5.75"). [11] ff., 316 pp. Lacks engr. frontis. Sommervogel, VII 154. Contemporary stiff vellum, spine with title inked in early hand; engraved frontispiece lacking and text block separating from spine from base upwards (with sewing visible). Light discolorations to many pages, inked jottings to front and back pastedowns. A scarce edition of a scarce text. Bookseller Inventory # 36670
