Abstract

This session is dedicated to new approaches on the construction(s) of Marian iconography in relation with representations of Saint Anne from various geographic areas such as Italy, Germany, and France. It deals with case studies (on the Annunciation and the Birth of Mary) that place these representations in the religious context of the debates on the Immaculate Conception. Furthermore, it brings into discussion iconographic motifs such as that of the education of the Virgin.
